Have you had any problems or have they asked for extra documents? Did you hire a representative?
Nothing, just called to CIC and was told that the case was transferred to Etobicoke local office. We have representative from the beginning, totally useless. He said we are on the right pass, just March and April are getting landing interviews now. Can we trust him at all? Wasted money.

I hear you, sometimes we have to take the job with our own hands. Luckily this forum exists.

you had better confirm with CIC that your applicaiton was transferred to local office for landing interview or further assessment. That is different scenario.

I called them twice, they said no updates after SA, transferred for further assessment, but no requests or questions so far, although it was transferred in the beginning of June.

Just read the rest of the posts and it looks like you got the DM letter. For me the Interview letter came from a different email address that is called "WST-Landing-Enquiries" and the title was "Communication from CIC-Vancouver- Immigration Appointment". It had an interview date and time at the very beginning as well as the address and things to bring with me.
Hi I’m August 22 applicant also expecting interview letter from CIC-Vancouver office. I live in BC. Just wondering how long it took you to get letter that’s what I’m waiting for right now

I'm an August 17th applicant and got mine on Monday (July 16th). :) It ended up being a week after getting SA and a week and a half after getting AIP. Hope that helps!

What are the usual requirements for an interview. What kind of paperwork are we expecting?

Photographs? Passport sized? Anything? Just curious cause I DO NOT photograph well lol( I make awkward faces like Chandler Bing maybe even worse!) So will have to make a few attempts before I am satisfied with my picture to give to IRCC to be forever posted on my PR card.

Hi all,

Applicant for July 28th 2017

AIP/SA = 12th June 2018
DM = 13 June 2018

Letter for interview just came through today at 8:58 (20th July 2018) for the 27th July 2018.
It took 5 and a half weeks from DM for us to get the letter for interview, felt like longer though!

We will be landing 1 day short of our 12 month mark.
Finally it will all be over :)
Congratulations!
