New dates for CELPIP exams in Canada

Amid high demand for the CELPIP test, Canada has announced new test dates for the exam. This followed the announcement by the Canadian government of starting 6 new Canada immigration pathways to Canada PR for international graduates and foreign workers in Canada.

The details of the new test dates have been announced by CELPIP on Twitter on April 26, 2021. CELPIP Canada has stated that it has worked in collaboration with test center partners to deliver an improved experience around registering for the test. CELPIP’s centralized operations have helped it to respond to prospective permanent residents to get entry into a test in the last week.

The increasing demand for CELPIP test

The demand is high for new immigration programs in Canada. This is evident from the fact that hundreds of international graduates and essential workers are expected to submit applications.

IRCC has instructed all prospective applicants to the new programs to keep all necessary documents including language test results ready when applying.

The 6 new immigration streams will offer Canada permanent visa pathways to approximately 90,000 international graduates and foreign workers currently present in Canada. The programs will also benefit French-speaking candidates.

Essential workers willing to work in Canada must have a minimum of CLB 4 to qualify for the programs. International graduates must have at least CLB 5 to qualify.

From May 6, 2021, Canada will begin to accept applications. The immigration programs will either close on November 5, 2021, or end once the quota of applicants is exhausted.
