CELPIP: Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program
CELPIP has three different tests. You must take the “CELPIP-General 2014” test to support your immigration application.
If you took the test before April 1, 2014, you would have had to take the “CELPIP-General (CELPIP-G)” test.
Note: As of April 1, 2014, you must take the “CELPIP-General 2014” test. The CELPIP-General 2014 scoring grid is different from the CELPIP-G test (see below).
IELTS: International English Language Testing System
IELTS has two options for the reading and writing tests: “General Training” and “Academic.” You must take the “General Training” option.
TEF: Test d’évaluation de français
You must submit results from these TEF tests as proof of your French language skills:
- compréhension de l’écrit
