Hi everyone,
I checked my status on the tracker today (strangely I don't get any emails about updates) and everything but the 'citizenship ceremony' is complete. Any idea what's next? Will I be getting an email about a proposed date and time? Also, my last update (language) was done on Jan 5th, how much more time to the ceremony? Thanks everyone.

Thatès good News, they moved your file ahead. You should get an oath confirmation soon.

I need your advice. I have had my decision made since Dec 20th. I told the agent that interviewed me that I can only be in Canada until the last week of January, however, I need to go back to my job next week, otherwise, I will lose my job. I am leaving on Friday, I am already two weeks late. The agent who interviewed me left a note to mention that I will not be in Canada after January which I don't know if it served for much. I applied three times for UP. The last time was because I received an email from an agent with a link to apply for UP which I thought was ridiculous since I had already applied twice and she was replying to my second UP, so I kept wondering why she didn't process the UP and either accept it or not instead of sending me links I have already used. Anyways, I don't know what to do because I really thought I would have received my certificate by now and leave after I get my passport, but this doesn't seem like a viable option anymore. I don't know if I am ranting or asking for advice, but I am very lost right now because say I receive my oath invite a week after I leave?! I can't afford to travel back and forth, and I can't afford to lose my job, and the thought of having to reschedule an oath ceremony that I have been waiting for anxiously breaks my heart... what am I supposed to do now?

So you do get an email when you are scheduled for the oath? I only keep checking on the tracker since I thought you weren't notified when you are scheduled until you get the email with the information about the oath. The reason I keep on checking is because I have to notify my office about the oath date so they can move my patients around my schedule on that day.
Yes, I received oath invitation email 2 weeks prior to my ceremony.

In your case, if you haven't received your oath ceremony invite- you simply have to wait. Since you said you have to leave by end of January there is no way you are going to have your passport with you by then. Because you will get oath invite via email 2 weeks prior to the schedule date and then comes Oath ceremony. After ceremony it will take around 2-4 weeks to get your citizen certificate by mail which is required to apply for passport.

The only thing you can do is to wait for the oath invite email in which they have provided a number or you simply have to reply back to that email the reason for being out of country (My visa office is Mississauga, yours can be different). Then may b they will find a solution or reschedule your date. Please read the email below:


***Please read the attached Notice to Appear carefully to verify the date/time of your appointment and to ensure you have all required items listed on the Notice to Appear in order to be eligible to participate in your Citizenship Ceremony.

Important:
· If you are unable to attend this event, please read the information in the Notice to Appear, and contact us as soon as possible at
CIC-Mississauga-Citizenship@cic.gc.ca or at the mailing address mentioned on your Notice to appear. Please include a reasonable explanation as to why you are unable to attend.
· If you are planning to travel outside of Canada using a Canadian passport shortly after your scheduled Citizenship Ceremony, we recommend that you don’t finalize your travel plans until you apply for and receive the passport. For further passport information on locations, timelines, fees, policies and procedures, please consult the website at https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/canadian-passports.html
· It is very important that we are notified of any changes in your contact information (i.e. address, email, and telephone number). Please visit our Web site at www.cic.gc.ca for information on:
1. How to change your contact information;
2. Application processing times;
3. Checking the status of your application.


I hope this helps. Please do not worry this can be reschedule, this is not once in a lifetime opportunity. You will be fine. :)
All the best :)
