CELPIP

Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program (CELPIP) is a recognized computer-delivered English language assessment tool. Since all components are completely computer-delivered in just one sitting, it offers a unique testing experience that requires no additional appointments. The computer-delivered Speaking component allows test takers to demonstrate their English proficiency without the possible confounding effects associated with human interaction as used in other testing systems.

CELPIP uses the English variety as spoken in Canada. It is ideal for providing proof of English language proficiency for immigration to Canada or for Canadian citizenship.

CELPIP consists of two proficiency tests: CELPIP-General and CELPIP-General LS.

 

The CELPIP-General Test provides Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) and other users with an accurate measurement of English language proficiency in common usage situations.

The CELPIP-General Test is a complete English language testing program that assesses general levels of functional competency. The test consists of the following components:

  • Listening (47 minutes)
  • Reading (60 minutes)
  • Writing (53 minutes)
  • Speaking (20 minutes)

Total test time: 180 minutes (3 hours)

The format and scoring of the test are referenced to the Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB).

What groups can use the CELPIP-General Test Results?
  • IRCC requiring proof of English proficiency of applicants for immigration to Canada
  • Canadian immigration associations and consultants advising applicants for immigration to Canada to fulfill language requirements
  • professional associations and employers requiring proof of English language proficiency of their members and prospective employees
