It is possible (worth a try) to see If it can be move to Vancouver? (Thinking it might be a sooner date)
Your application is probably with Vancouver office. Vancouver office is the one that processing your file, not the temporary office. Temporary office is only for tests, interviews and oaths. You can send a request asking to schedule your test and Oath at the Vancouver location and, as Chevy23 said, it could be granted or not. :)

yes but the question is Is there a way to tell if there is a backlog at Vancouver which would result in a test and oath later than the temp office date in Victoria in the spring? Anyway of knowing in advance of making the request?

if there is a backlog at Vancouver
I don't think that anybody can answer this question. You could ask to place you for the test and interview in Vancouver or Victoria whichever will be available first. Just state that you are okay to be invited for the test to Vancouver. Keep in mind, that the test and Oath usually are not going together so if they invite you for the test to Vancouver it doesn't mean that there will be the Oath on the same day. It can result in you will have to do the second trip to Vancouver for it (or wait for them to come to Victoria).
It's totally up to the officer on your case, you have very little to no influence in this matter.

Congrats! Going from AOR to IP can happen within 6 weeks. For Daddaxbaby from Victoria (May), he went to IP 38 days after AOR and for User1982 from Vancouver (June), it happened just 3 days after AOR! I hope you get your IP very soon.;)

Thanks My theory is the duration is also influenced by when the next Visit is to Victoria. If one is coming soon they respond to fit them in. However, if one has missed the next window then it could take time. Based on what I see, we likely missed the September visit so the next Visit would be in Maybe March. I like your optimism though. :):)

Hi,
Are you talking about In Process stage or the whole process?
I think the system works like this:
Sydney office receives all Citizenship applications first.
They input paper applications into their systems (data entry) and email AOR to applicants at Sydney office then they transfer each application to its final CPC for further processing. CPC (Case Processing Center) is a office that process and finalize applications after AOR. Sydney itself is a CPC too (deals with a part of applications).
When CPC received application from Sydney, they change status to "In Process".
CPC's existing backlog can cause further delays for processing applications.
We can assume that for those applications receive IP just after AOR, CPC can be Sydney office and application just move from one room to another.;)

If your test date would be in your trip dates then you can ask them to change it for you to the first available date after you return to Canada.

That's it? Nothing to lose no harm? I was getting worried that I will have to rush back. I heard from few people that they had to rush or go back for their test or something - are re-scheduling too far?
