Reposting it maybe someone answers quickly and my mind can rest in peace :D

"Hi everyone, planning to send the application in on Wednesday.
I have just two quick questions one is regarding to work history, at my current employer Ive had 3 different position I want to keep it simple so I was thinking to put all of them in the same line and in the occupation line just put them like positionX/positionY/positionV since they were all the same location same employer, would it be ok?
And my other dilemma is "the date your status was obtained" in question 9a Ive been here as temporary worker since 2012 feb (2different WP same company different position but both WP), but my eligibility is from nov 2013. In my understanding its asking when I gained my status here so for me it would be my first wp (2012 Feb) or should I just put down my second wp start date(2013. apr) since It falls closer to my eligibility period? How did you guys fill this question out?
Ive tried to search answer for the dates and I know its a repeated question, but I just want to hear inputs. Thank you" :)
I don't have knowledge on having different status but for your first question, I put my different positions in separate lines. I did work for one employer as well.

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.
Hi iam_toby

I am about to send my application (Family of 3) in the end of this month. I have a few question:
1. I heard that the application should be send without any staple. Will binder clip be okay? What about attaching photos?
2. To send the application, should I use any courier service i.e UPS/Fedex/DHL? Is there any additional thing I need to mention to the courier service like, register or something?

Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

Don't use UPS, use anything else FedEx is best I believe.

Hello Guys. I became eligible today, and intend to send my application next Monday. A couple of questions:

1- I got a Canadian travel document when I did not yet get my PR, to be able to return to Canada, should I include that in the "travel documents and passports" section?

1- Do you have any tips to avoid Canada post strike?
2- Should I send all passport pages, as they include stamps as travel evidence?
3- I spent 4 months in the US. continuous. Does this require any special attention to prove?

thanks in advance

1. Check the Instruction Guide - Gather your documents: https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/application/application-forms-guides/guide-0002-application-canadian-citizenship-under-subsection-5-1-adults-18-years-older.html#Step3

2. Use a courier like FedEx, Purolator, etc.

3. Check the Document Checklist. It clearly states to include copies of biographical pages of passports and/or travel documents.

4. Check the Instruction Guide - Complete the application form under 10.1 and 10.2 : https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/application/application-forms-guides/guide-0002-application-canadian-citizenship-under-subsection-5-1-adults-18-years-older.html#Step4

My friend told me that photos should be signed by a guarantor but I didnt see that in the instruction guide for Citizenship photos and I was told at London Drugs not to worry about it. I already submitted my application and I just want to know..

Not this time. When you apply for passport, the photo needs to be signed by a guarantor.
