At the end of this month I’m at 7 months without a test date scheduled
I reckon you’ll get your test in month 9 and your Ceremony in month 12,

  4. We sent you correspondence on February 13, 2019. If you have not yet provided the information or the requested documents, please do so as soon as possible. Please wait until you receive the correspondence before sending us additional information, as the correspondence will outline all information that is required.
  5. February 16th, 2019: sent fingerprints to RCMP
  6. April 16th, 2019: Received notice to appear for citizenship test on May 2nd
  7. May 2nd, 2019: Sat citizenship test
  8. May 3rd, 2019: Citizenship ceremony and DONE
Still no news on my application and it's massively disappointing that my application was received a month before yours, they started processing mine a month before yours and you have received citizenship and I haven't progressed beyond "In process"
Not your fault, but still disappointing.

On another forum I am on, people in Vancouver (Im not sure of your nearest IRCC office??) they are giving tests to people who submitted in August time. It is generally 9 months from application for test and then 12 months dead on for ceremony. It is annoying because my PR came through in 6 months and I was hoping to be able to vote this year, which isn't looking likely with those timelines

Unrelated question to timelines but do you need to advise IRCC if you have become commmon-law since submitting your application, or do I just tell them at my interview?

You don't want a conservative government. Trust me. They'll cut everything and sell lies to the public.

ANYWAY haha...I called the CIC (or IRCC now called) and they told me the Mississauga office is the busiest in the country and leads to the longest timelines. That's where I'm being processed through.

So believe it or not after my 'I'm just not going to think about it' attitude earlier this morning: I got my test date through for mid July!!!!

I have questions to ask but I will create my own thread rather then ask about it here

Edmonton must have fewer applications then. I applied before you and I’ve got my test in under 2 weeks.

Congratulations!

I am App received Mar 18 and still have not switched to "in process". I think Vancouver must be very busy.

Do you mean March 19?

If not you need to give them a call as that’s well over 12 months processing.

This makes me feel better, actually! My husband applied early April and still hasn't heard, so glad that others who applied before are in the same boat!
