Is your local office Mississauga? Was your application urgent? As Brampton resident getting test invite so early is strange, But raises hope for others like me
It wasn’t urgent, but I was in Woodbridge when I filed it, and it went to Scarborough. Not sure if that has something to do with it. Because of all the moving and stuff, I lost it. I have turned every single item inside out but couldn’t locate it.

I never cared about the processing time, used to think it will be granted eventually and we were not in a hurry to have one. But our son just born on late Feb (2.5 months early than expected) , and seems it will be difficult to manage test/interview and oath with him around (I read in this forum they do not allow kid during test and may not allow during oath). As my M-in-law is here till May, I am wishing to have test and oath when she is around (I know, its too much to wish for).
Yes, I understand your situation. We can do one thing only, "Just wait and watch".

Please update my status:

Received request for fingerprints on March 25th (as captured online). Submitted fingerprints today 27th March at RCMP.

1.I applied from Surrey, but I have got the fingerprint request from IRCC, 200-877 Expo Blvd, Vancouver, BC. Does this mean the Vancouver office is processing my application and not the Surrey office?
2. Any tips on how long I should wait before calling the call centre?
3. Does IRCC update the status online saying that they have received the finger prints?

I tried calling CIC few times, every time when I select the option to talk to the agent it says we have more than expected calls, cannot take your call. and the call got disconnected, anybody else had the same experience. I completed the fingerprints on the 13th march was trying to follow up to confirm about receiving

Well just found out one probable reason why Scarborough centre is super fast Chairman of parliamentary comittee on immigration is from north east end of toronto and another member of committee from Scarborough. And i guess both are reason behind speedy processing at that centre. We mississauga office applicant should remember when voting next all the hassle and inefficiency ur MPs showed to resolve the issues related to to their voters

You should come back to canada, being away so long may affect you getting citizenship.
