Mission accomplished. Oath taken on Friday. Need to wait for two working days to apply for passport. Thank you all for your help and support. ;D
Congrats.

How much time it took from decision made to oath letter? Also do they send oath letter by email or mail?

Applied in Nov 18. Had the test in March 13th , test 20/20 and minor questions and had decision made on march 14th.
I have seen some cases even faster especially in Mississauga. I did make a mistake and my application was returned as picture was not stamped and I send it back on first week of dec 2016

Congratulations!!! Yes.you're right. Be there at the specified time,or earlier if you like. :D :D :D There's at least another 99 ( maybe more,we were 104 on my oath date) applicants taking oath with you.....usually takes time to get everything settled,organized in the ceremony.

For cic everything is normal. But for us it is very frustrating . Especially if you are really waiting for the canadian passport to travel abroad.

Absolutely! I was about to apply for citizenship in 2015, only to find out that 3/5 rule has been replaced by a new 4/6 rule! Nothing else to do but to keep on living; your day of eligibility, application, test, interview, oath invitation, and oath ceremony will come....
