Canadian Academic English Language (CAEL)

The Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC) accepts the Canadian Academic English Language (CAEL) test result as proof of your proficiency in the use of the English language. Get an overall band score of 70 in the CAEL test to sit the ICCRC’s Entry to Practice Exam (EPE).

Exam Overview

The CAEL test will measure your abilities in speaking, reading, writing and listening. You will be given a score for each ability and an overall band score (this is the sum of all four sub-tests divided by four). 

ICCRC Approval

Unlike other English language tests approved by the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC) where you must achieve an minimum score per language ability.

Minimum Score Limit

There is no minimum score required per ability if you take the CAEL test – you will only need to get a total score of 70.

Alternative Solutions

If you are slightly weak in one of the four mentioned abilities, you can consider taking the CAEL test instead.
