What level of language proficiency do I need to apply as an immigrant investor?

The application period for the Immigrant Investor Venture Capital (IIVC) Pilot Program is closed. The Department is not accepting applications at this time.

To apply as an immigrant investor, you must be able to show that your level of language proficiency is at least Canadian Language Benchmark 5 in either English or French for all four language abilities (listening, reading, writing and speaking).

You must submit the original results of a designated third-party language test that shows that you meet the requirement when you apply.
