Can I Migrate to Canada by Taking the CELPIP Test And not the IELTS Test?

For far too long, many people with dreams of immigrating to Canada only had the International English Language testing Service (IELTS) as the only proof of English language proficiency that is available to them.

The good news is that intending immigrants to Canada in some countries now have the option of taking another English language proficiency test, the Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program (CELPIP).

The CELPIP test is computer delivered. Previously, the CELPIP test was only available in Canada, but now the test is available to people in countries like Nigeria, the United Kingdom, China, the United Arab Emirates, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, with others to follow soon.

How many types of CELPIP test do we have?

There are two types of the CELPIP test:

  • The CELPIP–General Test : this type tests the reading, listening, speaking, and writing skills of an individual who seeks to apply for permanent residency in Canada. Apart from Immigration, Refugees, And Citizenship Canada (IRCC), other organizations such as Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC) and the Real Estate Council of British Columbia (RECBC) accept the test.
  • The CELPIP-General LS Test : this test evaluates an individual’s listening and speaking skills and is accepted by the IRCC for Canadian citizenship and for professional purposes.

How long does it take to get the results of your CELPIP test?

The results of the CELPIP test are often available between four and five days after completing the test. Additionally, the test is taken in one sitting and the duration of the test is about three hours.
