I immigrated to Canada on September-2008,
I am aware of my stay in Canada, and I fulfill the residency requirement, and I have applied for a citizenship in September-2012, I have received an acknowledgement from CIC and received a book, at later April-2013 I have received a letter from CIC-M for a residence questionnaire and I submitted all the documents within a 36 days time frame, my question how long it would take for a whole process for citizenship of Canada, if they ask for a residence questionnaire?
My second questions is My PR Card is expiring in November-2013 can I apply early for a renewal of my PR Card, if I can how early can I apply? is there any time frame for it? does it affect my citizenship processing time?

1. Citizenship application with residency questionnaire, 35 months processing : http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/times/canada/cit-processing.asp
2. You should apply to renew your PR card now as the processing time is 110 days for renewal.
3. It is independent of your citizenship application, although you got a RQ, it is possible that you may get one with the PR card application.
