Does anyone know of a resource that lists recent canonizations of Orthodox Saints? I'm curious as to the status but not sure where that sort of info is available online.

There is a great site dedicated exclusively to the New Martyrs and Confessors of Russia which is a treasury of the lives of these saints, icons, liturgical commemoration dates, documents from Soviet archives (including of the NKVD), documents announcing their glorification issued by the Moscow Patriarchate, and many other goodies. The only drawback for many folks is that the site is Russian-language only.

There is also this webpage in English, with links to the lives of the New Martyrs: http://www.orthodox.net/russiannm/index.html

As for a general list of recently-glorified saints, I've not come across one. The closest would be the very comprehensive St Herman's Calendar, which, where possible, lists the year of repose of any listed saint for any given day of the year.

Last 20 years or so, but I'm most interested in current people who are being considered or anticipated to be canonized.

Of those being considered for glorification, St Herman's Calendar covers this, as explained on the first page: "At the end of the daily list of saints, there are occasionally commemorations in italics; these are more recent ascetics, hierarchs and martyrs, of holy life, but not yet canonised, for whom it is appropriate to celebrate memorial services."

New canonisations are done everywhere. There were a few in Poland in the last 20 years, a few months ago they did it in Serbia and Alexandria, in Russia and Ukraine it's done all the time.
