What is the CELPIP?

The Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program (CELPIP) is a general English language proficiency test.

The test clearly, accurately, and precisely assesses a test taker’s English abilities in a variety of everyday situations, such as communicating with co-workers and superiors in the workplace, interacting with friends, understanding newscasts, and interpreting and responding to written materials.
