Request a clearance certificate: Step 5. After you apply

From: Canada Revenue Agency

Step 5. After you apply

The CRA will send you an acknowledgement letter within 30 days of receiving your request for a clearance certificate.

The CRA’s assessment can take up to 120 days, assuming you provide all of the necessary documents. However, in certain situations, the CRA may need to do an audit before it issues the clearance certificate. 

If you have not received your certificate or a clearance certificate officer has not contacted you within 120 days, call 1-800-959-8281.
