Hi there. I am a Canadian moving to the US soon on a K1-Fiance Visa. About 3 weeks ago we got a letter in the mail saying our petition has been approved and is now being sent to the NVC from there to Montreal Consulate. I haven't received my checklist in the mail yet...just wondering when I should expect my interview date to aproximately be?

This is very embassy specific :) As a first step, if you haven't already done so, you can call NVC and see if you have received a case number. That's the number you will be using in contact with your embassy.

For Canada specific info ask in the local forum. Good luck to you

For Montreal, if they have available appointments, it normally takes 2-3 months from NOA2 to interview. You pick your own interview date.
