McGill University is the National Examination Centre in Québec for the DELF and the DALF. The Diplôme d'études en langue française (DELF), which has two levels, and the Diplôme approfondi de langue française (DALF) are given by the French Ministry of National Education to certify foreign candidates' skills in French. These diplomas are recognized by the Council of Europe and the Ministère de l’Immigration et des Communautés culturelles du Québec.

The DALF certifies the ability to successfully study in a French or francophone university. It exempts candidates from entry-level language tests in French universities.

The quality of the DELF and DALF certifications is recognized by French and European employers. There are DELF-DALF examination centres in 130 countries.

All candidates wishing to sit the DELF and DALF examinations must register with the Examination Centre at McGill University.
