Please note that some citizenship applicants are currently experiencing technical difficulties with our e-Client Application Status online tool. We are working to resolve the issue as quickly as possible. In the meantime, you may refer to the processing times web page for an estimate of how long it may take to process your application. Thank you for your patience.
The check your application status tool allows some CIC clients to securely view the status of their immigration and/or citizenship application(s) online, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week; anytime, anywhere.
Applicants that are not eligible to use the check your application status tool can use processing times as a guide to determine how long it can take to process their application.
