PTE Eligible for Canada PR Application

PTE in Canada

Person Test of English (PTE) Core is eligible for all Canada Immigration programs – except the Student Direct Stream (SDS).

𝐈𝐑𝐂𝐂 𝐀𝐩𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐯𝐞𝐬 𝐏𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐬𝐨𝐧 𝐓𝐞𝐬𝐭 𝐨𝐟 𝐄𝐧𝐠𝐥𝐢𝐬𝐡 (𝐏𝐓𝐄) 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐂𝐚𝐧𝐚𝐝𝐚 𝐈𝐦𝐦𝐢𝐠𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧

This implies that individuals under the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), candidates in Express Entry managed programs, and those requiring a language test for various  Canada Immigration purposes (excluding the SDS) — such as applying for Canadian citizenship — are now eligible to take the PTE Core.

Five accepted language tests

With the addition of the PTE Core, there are now five total language tests that are accepted by IRCC for immigration purposes. These are:

  • CELPIP General Test (English);
  • IELTS General Training (English);
  • PTE Core (English);
  • TEF Canada (French); and
  • TCF Canada (French).

All five of these tests assess language ability within four skills: reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Based on the specific program that candidates apply under, they may need to meet different criteria within these four skills.
