bramallbald and Joepottinger I really feel for you both - we got notice for ceremony May 9th and had our ceremony yesterday. I'm sure others may disagree but from the applicant perspective there just seems to be so much variation in each step of the process without any information for you to understand why. I really hope you both get across the finish line asap (fingers crossed!) . I really do feel fortunate that our timeline was quick

Its even more confusing when individuals have everything move to completed except the ceremony...whats the holdup with scheduling a teams meeting for those individuals. I understand in my case theres clearly something they still need to do with my application as its still "in progress" but for others I really dont understand it, why hold them up 5-6 months when its as simple as making an extra ceremony or two online.

It would be great though if they would at least just say in a quick email, this is why the application is held up.

Not excusing the delay or lack of communication but just some perspective. There are only 9 citizenship judges in Canada and each ceremony has to be run in one of their (virtual) presences. Each Zoom ceremony can have a max of 40 (more or less) groups - a group can be a single person or a family. The reason the number per Zoom ceremony is low (as I understand) is they need to make sure everyone clearly says the oath (one person was kicked out of my ceremony for not saying the oath properly). Add in to that the overhead of the pre- and post- ceremony activities and it's clear why scheduling ceremonies can take a while as there is simply not the capacity to meet the demand. The real answer is they need to go back to in-person ceremonies and it's not clear to me why this hasn't happened yet.

Which Federal minister is in charge ? Maybe a news program on TV could interview this person and get an explanation. At the moment there is just a process of ignoring any criticism altogether.

So, my tracker is now updated as of June 13th 2022 (yesterday.) That's great but absolutely nothing has changed apart from the date to say it was updated yesterday. Everything is completed except ceremony which still says 'not started'. Hopefully, this will mean a date is coming soon. I am way over the timeframe.

Incidentally, I sent a Twitter DM to the official (verified) IRCC Twitter account on Sunday outlining my case and my reference numbers etc. Coincidence? I don't believe in those!
