Description

McGill University, in collaboration with the Paris Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCIP), is an accredited testing center for TEF, TEFaQ and TEF Canada

 

TEF CANADA and TEFaQ are French proficiency tests recognized by the Ministère del'Immigration de la Francisation et del'Intégration (MIFI) for the CSQ (Certificat de sélection du Québec) and by the CIC (Citizenship and Immigration Canada) for federal immigration applications and in the citizenship application process.

 

They are also recognized as proof of language level by universities, CÉGEPS, various professional associations and many employers.

 

In general, the requirements of the Ministry of Immigration are:

  • Canadian Citizenship: listening and speaking for the TEF Canada and TEFaQ.
  • Federal Canadian Immigration: reading comprehension, listening comprehension, writing and speaking during the same session of TEF Canada
  • Immigration Quebec: Listening comprehension and Speaking tests are mandatory in the same session or not, and Writing and Speaking tests are at the discretion of the TEFAQ candidate.


Candidates must respect a 30-day wait period between two test registrations regardless of the test location. If this 30-day period is not met, the registration will be cancelled.

Please note that all fees are non-refundable in case of unjustified cancellation.

The Ministry of Immigration, Francization and Inclusion of Quebec has the right to ask for the verification of the TEFaQ results awarded by the CCIP. 


 
You can request a verification of your results by directly submitting your request to the CCIP within a delay of 90 days following the date on which the TEFaQ result attestation was issued. This process is initiated online at  https://www.lefrancaisdesaffaires.fr/tests-diplomes/test-evaluation-francais-tef/ and will cost 50 Euros. Such request should be processed within 4 weeks after the receipt of your application.
