FYI I just checked my status online and I'm finally scheduled for Oath. I haven't received any email yet but it says I'm scheduled for July 14th (Vancouver applicant).

Citizenship oath activity status updated in the system: July 2, 2021
Oath Ceremony: July 14, 2021

Details in my signature below.
So, quick question - have you translated all the stapms in your passports, or not? Which stamps you need to translate, it's not clear, Not all stapms are visible anymore...

The only ones that need to be translated are the ones not in English or French language. Often, stamps that have writing in some other foreign language also contain the equivalent English text. We found that the only stamps that needed to be translated from my wife's passport were from Latin America as the text was 100% Spanish. Stamps from Thailand, Myanmar, and other East Asian countries contained sufficient English.

For the ones that are not visible, the translator would usually placemark them with something in parenthesis indicating that the text is not readable.

Yes I did. I needed to translate stamps from Peru, Mexico, Cuba, Croatia and some other countries. I used these guys - https://www.languagesim.com/ and it took only about 4 days in total to have it translated.

Yes. They will cancel the decision since they obviously didn't know what they were doing when they made it. Then they will ask you for an interview and passport copies. After that, they will make the decision again. Keep an eye out on ECAS for "Decision made, and really final this time".

Just a quick update.

I contacted IRCC through the form available on their website to know when the ceremony will take place. I got DM on June 17 2021 and office is Vancouver.
I got the most useless response I have ever seen...I am just speechless

3 month wait seems to be the "norm"

I do hope will be a little shorter since I have been waiting since August 2019. After I completed the interview the officer said that the Oath would take between 2 and 2.5 months.

I have involved my local MP too and I hope he will have more luck then I did.

They told me the same..2-2.5 months, lets see if they keep their words, it’s been over 2 months but not 2.5 months yet..hopefully it will appear soon in my inbox
