IRCC Approves CAEL and CELPIP - General tests for the Student Direct Stream
  SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend  

International students can now choose Canadian-made English language proficiency tests to apply for study permits through the Student Direct Stream.

VANCOUVER, BC, May 29, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada has announced that starting on August 10, 2023, the Student Direct Stream (SDS) expedited study permit process will accept results from Prometric's Canadian Academic English Language (CAEL) and Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program - General (CELPIP - General) tests taken at a test centre.

"We welcome the changes to the Student Direct Stream and look forward to supporting more students who wish to live, work, and study in Canada with our CAEL and CELPIP - General tests. These products were developed right here in Canada and have already been an integral part of many people's immigration and study plans," said Michael Holaday, Vice President of Business Development at Prometric.

With thousands of tests delivered every year, CELPIP - General has been an approved English proficiency test for Canadian permanent resident status applications since 2009. The approval of CAEL will provide an additional choice for prospective SDS applicants and is already accepted by over 180 Canadian academic institutions.

Initially developed in 1987 by leading language assessment and testing experts at Carleton University, CAEL combines reading, writing, and listening assessments with speaking skills through computer-based language tasks. It is designed to reflect the Canadian academic context, mirroring the first-year classroom experience, and demonstrating to students the abilities needed to succeed in the Canadian post-secondary environment.

Supporting over 7 million test takers annually at testing locations in more than 180 countries worldwide, Prometric is a leading provider of technology-enabled testing and assessment solutions to many of the world's most recognized licensing and certification organizations, academic institutions, and government agencies. As part of Prometric's portfolio, CAEL and CELPIP are well-positioned to leverage the company's global reach and industry-leading experience, expertise, resources, and customer focus.

A combination of the CAEL and CELPIP - General tests are currently administered at test centres across Canada and internationally, including SDS countries India, China, and the Philippines.
