Hi PhDStream,
Yes it is great to know they are active.
When is your test? And i wonder what the average is ....in time.....number of days btw the test/interview and convocation for oath ceremony or the ceremony itself. I dont have access to the spreadsheet at work and it s too hard to see on my small smartphone. Lol. Whatever, i guess it ll be when it ll be.

As long as you are sure that your ecas says "Completed" before your package reaches passport office (or officer initiate your passport work), there should not be problem. Canadapost normally takes the guarantee time, most of the time it takes more than that. However, often times (from my experience) it delivers earlier than guarantee time.

Conclusion: To be on safe side, and if you can wait, send your application package only after your ecas says "Completed".
Status changed to Complete today morning ,will send my passport's application today ,thank you so much

Received on Nov 8, AoR on Jan 21 and In-process on Jan 28. IMO, with limited space/resources it takes time to accommodate multiple applicants for test together as compare to a single applicant. Ours is family application (2 adults), so may take some more time to get interview invitation

PhD you are next for sure. They do not change the IN PROCESS status or they haven t with us anyway....so keep an eye on your email inbox. The subject was Notice to Appear / Avis de convocation and it came from ircc.ottawacitscheduling-planificationcitottawa.ircc IRCC so keep an eye on that.
