You must prove your language skills by taking a language test approved by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). The Atlantic Immigration Pilot requires a language level of at least four (4). Your results must be less than two years old when you apply.
- schedule your test with an agency approved by IRCC and pay the costs, and
- include the results of your test when you apply. If you do not, we will send your application back to you without processing it.
Do not ask for your language test results to be sent directly to us. Submit your test information with your application. Keep your original test in a safe place as we may ask for it later.
