Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has announced that they will now be accepting the language results from Test de connaissance du français pour le Canada (TCF Canada). TCF Canada is administered by the Centre international d’études pédagogiques (CIEP) and tests applicants’ proficiency in the French language.
The TCF Canada joins the Test d’évaluation de français (TEF Canada) as the second French language test recognized by IRCC.
Applicants to economic immigration programs are required to demonstrate a certain level of proficiency in either official language in order to be eligible for immigration to Canada. The requirement for French-speaking applicants is to show a proficiency that is equivalent to NCLC level 7. English-speaking applicants must only provide a French test result if they claim an ability to speak French on their application.
This announcement forms part of the Federal Government’s goal to attract francophone immigrants to provinces outside of Quebec. Applicants wishing to use TCF Canada will be able to have the test administered at testing centers in Canada and in more than 150 countries around the world.
