Language Proficiency Considered Of Highest Importance For Canadian Immigration In 2013

04 Jan 2013


Immigration News

Fluency in any of Canada’s official language will help immigrants to find employment easily. This has made language proficiency the most important factor for 2013 Canadian immigration. The schemes affected are:

  • The Federal Skilled Worker Program
  • The Federal Skilled Trades Program
  • Provincial Nominee Programs
  • The Canadian Experience Class

Assessing Proficiency

English and French language proficiency is assessed as per Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) system. CLB system ranks language proficiency separately for each of the four language skills: speaking, reading, writing, and listening.

CLB levels range from 1 to 12. Levels 1-4 are considered a ‘basic level of proficiency’; 5-8 are considered ‘intermediate’; and 9-12 are considered ‘advanced’.

English: There are two designated organizations for English language testing:

  • International English Language Testing System (IELTS),
  • Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program (CELPIP)

The only accepted French-language test is the Test d’Evaluation de Français (TEF)

Individuals with knowledge of both English and French may choose to test in one or both languages. Additional points will be awarded if the applicant knows both the languages.
