Thank you Zmaqsood. I'm just quite anxious for the test date as I want to finish the exam before my baby pops-out. I'm due in June, hopefully my exam date is end of this month or first week of May
Calgary is already booked until May end. They send out invites soon but test happens at quite later date. E.g. people who got test invites in March got test dates of end april and May. So probably now they will start inviting for End may and June

But u can alwaye request reschedule of ur test. Nothing is more important than ur baby

Hi,
I applied in November 2018. Received AOR in January and in process on Feb 5. Received a Fingerprint request today from the scarborough office. However, my wife did not. What does this mean? Is this a routine request? The letter says something about name match in RCMP records?

Thank you! I am just curious what triggers this FP for soneone without any negative record. I know many friends who did not receive any such requests in the past. So it was quite surprising. I am assuming it’s random, but would be interested in knowing the thoughts of others in the forum.

I think it is random or if you have a really common name

It happens if your name is common. I got mine in PR and again yesterday. It says the same staff on papers 2 and 3. scary staff indeed :) .

Hi Everyone,

User name: awong
Application delivered: Nov 5, 2018
AOR: Jan 16, 2019
In Process: Jan 22, 2019
Waiting for the test invitation.

Current location: Richmond BC (Vancouver)

I am seeing many Calgary applicants get test invitations but Vancouver is slower.

Crossing fingers to get the invitation sooner as I'm planning to relocate to Singapore for a job offer after mid May.
