The Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program (CELPIP) is Canada's leading English language test.
The CELPIP Test is offered in two versions including one version for applicants for permanent residence in Canada and one version for applicants for Canadian citizenship. The CELPIP Tests for Canadian permanent residence and citizenship have been officially designated by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada as evidence of English language proficiency.
Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program (CELPIP) is a recognized computer-delivered English language assessment tool that measures listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills. All four components of CELPIP are completely computer-delivered in just one sitting, offering a unique testing experience that requires no additional appointments. The computer-delivered Speaking component allows test candidates to demonstrate their English proficiency without the possible confounding effects associated with human interaction as used in other testing systems.

CELPIP uses the English variety as spoken in Canada. The format and scoring of the tests are referenced to the Canadian Language Benchmarks. CELPIP is ideal for providing proof of English language proficiency for immigration to Canada, for employment, or for admission to various post-secondary programs or professional associations.

CELPIP consists of two proficiency tests: CELPIP-General and CELPIP-General LS.
