I totally understand it's a small portion, but at the same time it shows a trend, I still can't believe they finish 80% of cases within a year.
We can't assume those who aren't on this forum or silent or inactive readers got their application done and we are the only one waiting for so long, in fact it can be totally opposite, we add them all and the number drops even further!
We do not know which statistical method they use to come up with the number or whether they selectively pull data (only from "routine" applicants, not the outliners etc.). This forum is way too small to even give any good trending result. You need to pool numbers from previous years as well if you really want representative data. However, I highly doubt we can get that.
After bill C-6 passed they received a lot more applications, so maybe the number is calculated from the previous years.
Again we do not know for sure to draw any conclusions, just patiently wait.
Best of luck!

I was in the same situation that I never received any email invite like the majority of other applicants. There was just an update on ECAS showing they sent me an invite. I called and the lady told me to print out a copy of ECAS status to show as proof. I ended up receiving a letter exactly 7 days prior to my oath ceremony. Keep checking your mail box until then.
On my oath date, there was one person who did not have the oath invite letter and they were ok with it. I don't think you have anything to worry about. Just reconfirm the location with the agent and show up on that day with or without the letter.

Thanks for your reply, my ecas shows deceion made but not oath invite line.

Hi, I applied for my citizenship in May 2018, I was asked for my police verification in Sep 2018 and have been waiting for updates ever since when suddenly today I see that I have directly been called for the Oath ceremony, I was expecting a invite for the citizenship test. Is this something common since from what i know a citizenship test is mandatory for everyone. Should I call and clarify?


Citizenship
  1. We received your application for Canadian citizenship (grant of citizenship) on May 18, 2018.
  2. We sent you correspondence acknowledging receipt of your application(s), and a study book called Discover Canada on July 17, 2018.
  3. We started processing your application on August 9, 2018.
  4. We sent you correspondence on September 18, 2018. If you have not yet provided the information or the requested documents, please do so as soon as possible. Please wait until you receive the correspondence before sending us additional information, as the correspondence will outline all information that is required.
  5. We sent you a notice on March 5, 2019 to appear and take the oath of citizenship at the citizenship ceremony to be held on March 29, 2019 at 12:30 PM. The notice you will receive will be your official confirmation of your appointment. If you have not received this notice prior to the date of your scheduled appointment, please contact us.
In the ecas shown above there is no line indication for test invite plz clarify thank you only for Oath

For Montreal Applicants:

I just called CIC to check the status of my application which is in the status "Decision Made" since Dec 2018. I passed the citizenship test on 22NOV18. The CIC agent told me that there are almost 50 applicants from Montreal who are waiting for the oath ceremony which is most likely to be taking place in May 2019.

I’m May 2018 applicant Toronto,still waiting
I am from Etobicoke. I called CIC in Dec and they said my application is with Mississauga. In the sheet, even April 2018 applicants from GTA didn't receive test invites. Hopefully May applicants will get Test invites in Apr.
