Can anyone tell what is the avg processing time for Kitchener-Waterloo applicants? I am a March 2018 applicant, just want to get a ballpark estimate of when things will start rolling. My app is in "in process" since June 20. Thank you

Rest assured, if your application is not complex, you should have your oath ceremony by March 2019. Apart from that, it's too difficult to tell at the moment. And yes the app trackers are sort of suggestive.

Man my app seems slow compared to most of those above...
I sent my App from kitchener (app office Nova scotia I think) 17th Jan 2018
App Received January 29, 2018
AOR sent February 25, 2018. (they said they had sent me a book too but I never got that!)
Started processing Mar 26th 2018

no test date yet! I am in kind of a rush as I need it for a federal job... is it worth maybe ringing the office and seeing whats going on? Who shoud I ring?

I checked the Citizenship 2017 spreadsheet, and was surprised that all of Kitchener/Waterloo applicants from October, November, December have taken the oath. But when I checked this topic, there are still many left. In fact many are still waiting for the tests. I did some research, and found out that @algonquin is from Regina, @jaihanuman is from Montreal, @loncan is from Saskaton, @inarms is from Montreal, and @AA_UW is from Scarborough. Can you please tell me which city is correct? Is spreadsheet city correct or city under this topic is correct? This is giving wrong statistics.

I will also request to the one who is taking care of this statistics, can he/she also add additional column for the application send/received date.

Thank you.

The original creator/moderators of this thread are no longer active on the forum. The additional columns were removed to save space, before we moved to the code format.

You're welcome to update it yourself if you wish, or to refer to the main tracker sheets.

You're also incorrect that applicants from those months have taken their oaths, I haven't yet, and less than 2 months ago I was still in limbo. Hell, there are some people that applied as soon as the rules changed who're still waiting for their test date.

Your app is not going any slower and you will likely be a citizen by the end of the year if all is well with your application.
In comparison, my dates were:
Nov 6 - app sent, Nov 8 - received, early Jan - AOR, Feb 2 - In Process, Aug 8 - test.

If you want to apply to a federal job you should have requested for urgent processing with proof from the start. You could try contacting now but I'm not sure whether it would speed up your process.

Actually what happened, I filter the sheet using column B (A-Z), and for some reason it didn't sort all the columns correctly. And once sorted then I checked/searched all the users, and found different cities for all the users.

Also, from sorted it shows that all the Kitchener/Waterloo applicants from Oct to Dec have taken the oath.

Can somebody tell me how to correctly sort the sheet by city name? I am doing: selecting column B, then from the menu DATA > Sort range by column B? Is this correct way?

Thank you, and I apologize for my previous post.
