Hi,

Can anyone inform me a government funded school/training centre from where I get a ESL Certificate?

I went for English Language Assessment and got 8, but no school is ready to issue a certificate on the basis of this Assessment Result.

Any help would be highly appreciated.

Regards,
Naveed

Hello Naveed,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

You can find information regarding what is specifically required by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) for citizenship on the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) website in the FAQ section.

Here is an excerpt,

You must provide evidence that you have reached CLB/NCLC 4 or higher in speaking and listening as part of a LINC/CLIC course to meet the language ability requirement for your citizenship. A placement test done by a LINC/CLIC assessment center is not accepted as evidence.



You can find some detailed information regarding what is acceptable and where to get it in the What documents can I use to prove that I meet the citizenship language requirement? section.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.

Hello There,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

According to IRCC article, Find out if you have the language proof for citizenship: Step 1

If you attended a secondary or post-secondary program in English or French, you may:
[...] send a copy of proof that you completed or are attending a program with your application. Proof can be your:
  • diploma
  • transcript
  • certificate
Your proof must be in English or French. If it’s in another language, you must also send a certified English or French translation. The translation should show that the language of instruction of the program was English or French.

You may also find helpful information in the IRCC Help Centre article, What documents can I use to prove that I meet the citizenship language requirement?

You may also find useful information in the Settlement.Org article How do I get my documents translated?

If you have any additional questions, please feel free to post them here.

We hope this information is helpful.

Hello There,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

According to IRCC article, What language level do I need when I apply for citizenship?
If you are between the ages of 18 and 54 on the date you sign your application, you must meet the Canadian Language Benchmarks Level 4 (CLB 4) or higher in speaking and listening.
This means to become a Canadian citizen you must show that you have an adequate knowledge of English or French by providing, with your citizenship application, proof that you can speak and listen in English or French at CLB/NCLC 4 level or higher.


You may also find helpful information in the IRCC Help Centre article, What documents can I use to prove that I meet the citizenship language requirement?
