CELPIP

 

Canada’s leading English language test

The Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program (CELPIP) is an English language proficiency test designated by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) for permanent resident status in Canada and Canadian citizenship.

The test provides a valid and reliable measurement of a test taker’s English abilities in a variety of everyday situations, such as communicating with co-workers and superiors in the workplace, interacting with friends, understanding newscasts, and interpreting and responding to written materials.

 

WHY CHOOSE CELPIP?

WE USE CANADIAN ENGLISH AND ACCENTS

The CELPIP Test is a Canadian Test and incorporates Canadian English and accents. Individuals wishing to immigrate and adapt to life in Canada will benefit from using the English that they hear and use in their day-to-day activities. Test takers who have been immersing themselves into Canadian culture will better understand and relate to the Canadian English and accents used in the CELPIP Test.

COMPUTER-DELIVERED TESTS

The CELPIP Test is fully computer delivered, providing test takers the opportunity to complete all test components in one test sitting, with no additional appointments or interviews. CELPIP test takers use a computer mouse and keyboard to complete Reading and Writing components of the test, and a computer microphone and headset to complete the Listening and Speaking components of the test. Computerized tests offer test takers a quick and reliable testing experience.
