Everything you need to know about CELPIP

22Jun

The Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program (CELPIP) is a general English language proficiency test. CELPIP General is suitable for people who need proof of English-language skills when applying for permanent resident status in Canada under the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP), Canadian Experience Class (CEC), Start-up Visa Program, and various Provincial Nominee Programs, or for employment. The test is administered by Paragon Testing Enterprises , a subsidiary of the University of British Columbia (UBC). The test clearly, accurately, and precisely assesses 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.
