Centre for Canadian Language Benchmarks (CCLB)

The Centre for Canadian Language Benchmarks (CCLB) is recognized as the centre of expertise in support of Canadian national standards for describing and measuring adult English and French second language proficiency, and is the national standard setting body. The goal of the CCLB is to promote excellence in the teaching and learning of English and French to adults across Canada by establishing and supporting language proficiency standards that affect program delivery and policy development in the areas of education, labor market access, and immigrant integration across the country. CCLB works on policy, guidelines, research and development, and to promote their recognition and use as practical, fair and reliable national standards of second language proficiency in educational, training, community and workplace settings.
