Hey, thanks for creating this thread! I'm planning to send out my application on Monday, June 1. I'll send my details for the tracking sheet once I've submitted.
Will probably use FedEx looking at how Canada Post is facing serious delays right now and people are waiting up to 2 weeks for their packages to deliver.
Hopefully IRCC goes back to working on applications again soon and we don't get lost in a giant backlog!

I’ll also be submitting our application on June 3 (wednesday). I will definitely use FedEx or UPS, whichever will come out cheaper and faster. Canada Post is just so unpredictable these days hehe

I used the FedEx Envelope (instead of own packaging), and Standard Overnight (2nd fastest option). It was $21.48 base rate plus $4.50 for signature, and with $3.90 tax the total was $29.88. Probably ~$8-10 more than what Canada Post XpressPost would cost but with next day guarantee.

awesome, thanks for the details. I'm going with FedEx for sure, now at least I have a better idea. I was having trouble estimating using their website.

I believe the answer to this question is yes. You might only see a pending transaction, and then a few days later, the transaction should be posted on your credit card account.

I see okay. I asked çoz I didnt see the transaction being posted on my cc account even under "pending transactions" which led me to believe that it wasn't processed at all. Anyways, all good now :) Thank you! :)

Thank you @melito for creating this thread. Planning to apply soon.

Thread mates: I have a few questions in the citizenship application form. Please answer
  • Q 11 - How to answer section 11 if I was working multiple jobs during same time. I mean overlapping.
    I was doing two jobs (One full -time and One part-time)
    From To
    2017-08 to Present Work 1 (full-time)
    2017-05 to 2019 -10 Work 2 (part-time)
    2017 -01 to 2017-05 Unemployed
    Do the VO think that I have a gap of 3 months from 2017 -05 to 2017-08.
  • Q 13 – Should we list Student / Employment / Tourist. Confused as all these are not immigrant visas.
  • Q 15 a – Is old IELTS photo copy (dated 2013, used when applying PR) is enough for proof. Or Do I need to write IELTS.
  • Q 17 c – Yes/ No , If I am not a Quebec resident.
  • All places - Do we need to write N/A, if we have nothing to write or leave it blank.
    • Like in Q 4b,
    • Q 7b (if mailing address is same as home address)
    • Q 10 b (country /territory)
    • Q 14a (In table B)
    • Q 16 b
  • In the physical presence calculator, do we need to write the date left Canada and date entered Canada or how?
Please answer these questions. I will be very thankful.
