Hello Everyone

Need some information from members who have already taken the oath.

During oath did you need your COPR if you had your PR card in your possession and became a PR after June 28 2002?

Just trying to be sure as mine is back home.

Thanks

Ronnie

Anyone else who applied in March 2021 still waiting for oath invite? We successfully completed our citizenship test on 5 March 2022 with language, prohibitions and eligibility still "in progress". Second background check completed on 28 May 2022. I'm feeling so discouraged.

Application received: 18 March 2021 (paper - family of 4)
AOR: 8 July 2021
1st Background check completed: 25 Aug 2021
Citizenship test: 5 March 2022
2nd Background check completed: 28 May 2022
Office: Edmonton, AB
Language, prohibitions, eligibility: in progress
I’m in the same boat though my application date is Feb 2021. Got requested copies of passport few days ago and that’s it!
I lost my hope as well since every person that applied after me got their passports already and look at where my application is now.. Honestly I don’t expect any update anytime soon since their new normal processing time is 26 months now! So ridiculous..

We (me and my wife) attended our oath ceremony yesterday and today our online status and our ECAS status has set to Completed with a Congratulations message. We're now Canadian Citizens! :)
We got our oath ceremony rescheduled because on June, we were out of country. IRCC Mississauga office rescheduled it within a month.

Thanks everyone for their help, support and encouraging remarks! It means a lot.

Hi all.
Please help I need some clarification. I am applying for my 1st Canadaian passport. In the passport application form it asks to state any previous travel document. Is PR card considered a travel document whose details need to mentioned here?

Look for an email with your application number titled Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada Event Notification. There should be an attached PDF that contains the time zones.

Other things to check from what I can deduce is at the very bottom there's a form that you will sign and contains where the judge is located, it is possible that this is the time zone they're referring to.

In my invitation for Oath, The first line shows CENTRAL STANDARD TIME (CST) (Saskatchewan Time) which is where the judge is located, followed by the other standard time zones.

The email also contains your zoom link and all the other information needed, if you can not find that email then I suggest you contact IRCC through this link http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/contacts/index.asp (linked from the online application tracker).

Hope this helps. Congrats (huge news) and good luck
