Canada's leader in English language testing
Administering secure and reliable English language tests

Canada’s leader in English language testing.

Paragon Testing Enterprises, a subsidiary of The University of British Columbia (UBC), was created in 2009 to commercialize the university’s English language proficiency tests.

Paragon’s mission is to make its English language proficiency tests the tests of choice for those wishing to immigrate to Canada, become Canadian citizens, or study in Canada at all levels. To achieve this mission, Paragon conducts ongoing test research in collaboration with internationally recognized scholars at Canada’s leading universities. This test research program ensures the highest quality tests, and enables Paragon to compete with large international testing agencies.

Paragon currently administers three tests: the Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program (CELPIP) Test, the Canadian Academic English Language (CAEL)Test, and the Language Proficiency Index (LPI) Test.
