Hi. Asking for a friend. Does anyone of you have any idea what will happen to the application if the spouse didn't pass the citizenship test and applied as family. Is CIC going to process the application separately or wait for the other family member to pass the test? Thanks

I would say it depends on the local office processing your application, I think they will try to keep the family application together so all members can attend the oath the same day as a family, but circumstances could change that as a family member failing the test more than once.

If you do not pass the second test, we will send you a notice telling you to appear for a hearing with a citizenship officer. During this hearing, the citizenship officer may assess whether you meet all the requirements for citizenship. During an oral interview, the citizenship officer may:

  • test your knowledge of Canada and the responsibilities and privileges of citizenship;
  • ask questions about your residency in Canada; and/or
  • assess if you have adequate knowledge of English or French.
If you are asked to attend an interview, but applied for citizenship with your family by sending your applications in the same envelope, your application will be processed separately from your family's unless you want them to be processed together.

Yes it varies by the local office processing your application it could be within a day, weeks or months. You won't probably see an updated during the weekend, if the are working the update will show up until Monday.

Hi admin ,,

please update the sheet /tracker

Status updated on Nov 9 . But i checked only today :)
ECAS - Decision Made
Tracker - All status completed . Oath Ceremony - Not Started
Paper applications - Mississauga Office .

I heard from some friends that this office is very busy for ceremony and hence it will take some 5-6 months to get the oath date . But i am not sure .

All the best to others . God bless .

Congratulations, I have updated the spreadsheet! It is a waiting game and very hard to predict. You can check the trends in the spreadsheet.

Please keep us posted.

Hey everyone,

Quick question: the ECAS doesn't seem to have my application on record. The only way i can check my citizenship application status is through the tracker. Is that correct? ECAS shows nothing. Please advise. Thank you

It is normal for online applicants, you would only have access to the new dashboard (tracker).
