  5. Received fp letter today at home..Ecas update was on March 6...noticed weird stuff...my home office is Winnipeg but Fp request came from Vancouver office and have to send it to them...anyone knows why that would be..Winnipeg people or others..please advise
  6. There are only two offices in Canada that deal with FP requests. Vancouver for the west, and St. Clair for the east. Vancouver is your secondary office. Your file will be transferred to your local office after FPs are processed and cleared by RCMP and IRCC.

  8. This is similar to our situation except the family size (1 child).... time line is identical. According to MP, background check finished last week, But still no news from Kitchener office. I will follow-up with MP in three to four weeks if nothing happens

  10. IMO, it's best to just do them again and avoid any unnecessary and unexpected delay.
  11. I went to the police station to submit my fingerprints and the officer didn't note my citizenship file number on it. Should I go back and get it redone?
  12. Here is my time line in Edmonton, Urgent request:
    1. We received your application for Canadian citizenship (grant of citizenship) on October 18, 2017.
    2. We sent you correspondence acknowledging receipt of your application(s), and a study book called Discover Canada on October 30, 2017.
    3. We started processing your application on November 20, 2017.
    4. We sent you a notice on December 29, 2017 to appear and write the citizenship test on January 23, 2018 at 8:30 AM.
    5. Got a phone call on March 5 from CIC to take the oath on March 14.
    6. Oath ceremony email on Mach 7.
    7. Website changed from IP to DM on March 9.

  13. Hi rotest100, what do you mean by Urgent request? Did you contact CIC to expedite your citizenship application? Based on your timeline, from the date of your exam to your oath taking is a little over 7 weeks. A friend had her oath taking in March 6, 7 weeks after her written exam on Jan 15. Im from Edmonton and I took my exam on Feb 16 and up til now my status is still in process. Your timeline shows that status change from IP to DM could happen days before the oath taking.
  14. Makes sense, i second that.
    My experience was the same, the officer didn't care about any translation (i wasted about $150 to get some stamps translated).
