Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program (CELPIP)
The Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program (CELPIP) is the only Canadian English language test designated by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). The test allows test takers to demonstrate their ability to function in English, and accurately assesses a test taker's English abilities in a variety of everyday situations.
The CELPIP Test comes in two versions including the CELPIP-General Test for applicants for permanent resident status in Canada, and the CELPIP-General LS (Listening and Speaking only) Test for applicants for Canadian citizenship.
Why Choose CELPIP?
Fully Computer Delivered
The CELPIP Test is fully computer delivered, allowing test takers to complete all test components in one test sitting, with no additional speaking appointments or interviews, providing test takers with a quick and reliable testing experience. CELPIP test takers use a computer mouse and keyboard to complete the Reading and Writing components of the test, and a computer microphone and headset to complete the Listening and Speaking components of the test.
Quick Online Results
The results of the CELPIP Test are available online in just eight business days. Test takers can also choose to add Express Rating, so that their scores are available online in only three business days.
Uses Canadian Accents
The CELPIP Test is 100% Canadian, and uses Canadian accents. Test takers who have been living and working in Canada will better understand and relate to the Canadian accents used in the CELPIP Test.
