Hello, everyone.
I became protected person in 2011. At that time CIC took my passport and i've never got it back.
Became a PR in 2016, and now i am applying for citizenship.
Since i did not have a passport in the last 5 years, i have to submit 2 IDs which have photo.
I am planning to submit my driver's license as one and dont know what i should submit as 2nd.
I do have Alberta health card but it doesnt have a photo. What else can i submit with my application?

You can use these:

Photocopy of personal identification. Examples of identification you can use include:
  • driver’s license;
  • health insurance card
  • senior citizen’s card
  • age of majority card

Quick question: Does anyone know how long it typically takes for the application status to be available on CAS since the day they receive it?
Thanks! :)

Added. And to answer your question: Please have a look at the spreadsheet. You can find the link in my signature.
Look at the moth of August, as August applicants are receiving AORs at the moment. It looks like it takes an avarerage of around 75 days to receive the AOR, and another 8 days after that for information to appear on ECAS.

Thanks! I can't see the spreadsheet for some reason. When I click on the 2018 applciations I get this error:

"Google Docs encountered an error. Please try reloading this page, or coming back to it in a few minutes.

To learn more about the Google Docs editors, please visit our help center."

The 2017 spreadsheet works fine

Seems to be a common issue. Try re-loading the spreadsheet again in a couple minutes. It's often overloaded in the am with too many people trying to access it.
Seems to be working great at night :)

I am applying for my daughter and I have a question. Do I need to submit school records from all schools she attended or just from the latest one. She is in current school for last 2.5 years?

Checklist doesn't say anything about it. Its asking two piece of IDs for minor and in example it says school records, not saying current or all.
Then it is used for Identification purposes and you only need current. You only need documents from the past to confirm your stay or job history.
For ID you have a choice to pick any two.

I hope this helps
