IRCC to approve a new language test for immigration purposes

According to an internal memo of the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), the Department intends to add one more designated English test for economic class immigrants. Currently, there are just four language tests for prospective immigrants allowed for immigration purposes: IELTS and CELPIP for English, followed by TEF and TCF for French. Within the following 12 months, IRCC will look for potential initiatives and improvements to make the process of designation of the new language tests more transparent and streamlined. Additionally, IRCC plans to align the Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB) with the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR). The designation of the new tests will also require IRCC to update Ministerial Instructions, Program Delivery updates, Express Entry system, Global Case Management System (GCMS) and other Departmental tools. At this point, the IRCC did not release the name of the new test.
