Oh really?? So late? Is this normal? I mean everyone gets the email only a week prior to the ceremony? Just wondering cuz don’t know what documents they might ask me to show before the oath ceremony!
Oath went well, became a citizen on Nov 5, and received my Certificate of Canadian Citizenship a week later on Friday Nov 12. Now I can apply for my passport as well. It's been a long journey but finally concluded.
Hey Artcam
Can you let me know where you are located? I had my oath on November 4th and still haven't received my certificate.

Hi all!
I heard back from Mississauga office. Same BS about first in first out, covid delays. But I’m in queue for oath. I replied that there are people with decision made after me that had their oath already, which shows that fifo rule is not followed. Not sure they will reply again.

I think this is a template reply, not a customized one. Someone received it, and then in few days an update happened to their file.

In my case, Surrey never replied to my request for status update. Still haven't heard anything about the additional travel information I sent.

I honestly cannot comprehend what kind of "objective" queue they must be working with in Mississauga =/

Over the weekend I found out about a close friend in MTL.... he applied in oct 2020 and received oath invite a while back but had to delay it since he'll be out of the country. I am happy for him... but daaaaaamn =/

Happens all the time. Those who are out and not in a hurry get oath invites and reschedule, while those who are in Canada and impatiently waiting to take the oath get delayed :rolleyes:

Something happened today, though. My husband and I were suspecting they were waiting to invite us both to the oath together. But his application still had some steps not complete. Today, everything moved to complete, except for oath, that didn’t start. Let’s see.

Hi all,

Just give a timeline for your reference, I finally got DM, but haven't receive any oath letter yet.

Application mailed on August 2019.
  1. Oct 29,2019 Application filed.
  2. Nov 22,2019 Background verification activity status updated to completed.
  3. Jun 8,2021 Test invited letter emailed,
  4. Jul 2,2021 Test activity status updated to completed.
  5. Nov 12,2021 Prohibitions, Physical Presence, Language skills status updated to completed.
My application status on new tracker still IP, but on old tracker is DM.

Don't know how long still need to be wait until complete this journey but at least can see the case still moving.

I hope all of you who still waiting for the DM and Oath can have a good luck to get it done asap. Same to me. :)

I can’t believe I am here to finally share this. On the day my decision made celebrates 7months, I’ll have my oath ceremony!
My husband was invited as well. So it seems that his application was holding mine back.
Congrats!!!

Ugh... imagine all the stress they could have saved you if an actual human being with a bit of empathy had simply replied "You will receive invite until we have made a decision on all applicants in your family group". There... one sentence, that's all it took hehe.

I see a lot of movement recently. Congrats to everyone :)
DM is nowhere is sight for me. I'll probably be the last one in this group. Might as well start replying to my own comments to keep myself company hehe.
