I did mine in Scarborough about an hour. But I would say 2 hours.

Exam setup - 10-15 mins
Exam - 30 minutes (but you can finish in 5-10 mins)
Waiting Room after exam - 10-15mins
Interview & Verification - 5-10 mins depending on your case.

It may be from location to location, but thats what i underwent 2 weeks ago in Scarborough location. :) hope this helps.

Does anyone know why the Oath letter takes forever in Vancouver?

3-5 months is unacceptable when other locations takes a couple of days or weeks.

All jokes aside how exactly is any part of this process deemed unacceptable? What sort of entitlement is that?

what the hell does FB have to do with this?

You (and all of us) are in a new country going through the naturalization process. You're not entitled to it. get real.

Hello imran01
I am having a tricky question ,, here is my situation
1- I had a citizenship test back on 03/13/17 and for my bad luck ,, I missed it ,, I arrived late and I missed it ,, and before that I was asked to do a FingerPrint on 02/16 which was done and sent on 02/23/2017 ,,, so my current situation is ,, I am still waiting to be rescheduled for final test ,,,
today I called 1888-242-2100 ,, and I asked the agent
1- is my file consider non-routine ,, he said no ,, the file is still consider routine
2- also he said that my file is on retest

so my question would be ,, after missing the 1st test and asked to have a FP ,, do you think that my file would still consider routine ?????
thank you

@sgnv. u can think 3-5 month oath timeline is unacceptable. its your opinion

and for cic standard processing time is 12 months. so u have to think - how can u say unacceptable
