Frequently Asked Questions:

What is CLB?

The Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB) describe 12 levels of ability in each of four different language skills – Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing. The CLB are used in Canada to describe the language ability of people who are learning English. For each language skill, you receive a separate benchmark, and this benchmark indicates how well you can function in that language skill.

Do you still need to submit or appear for the CLB document if they have IELTS or another equivalency?

Yes, you must still provide a legitimate CLB document.
