The Centre for Canadian Language Benchmarks is:
- recognized as the centre of expertise in support of the CLB and NCLC national standards for describing and measuring adult English and French second language proficiency.
- the national standard setting body.
The goal of the CCLB from the beginning has been 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, labour market access and immigrant integration across the country.
The mission of the CCLB is to support the CLB and NCLC through:
- 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.
We, the Board of Directors and staff of the CCLB, are committed to maintaining and promoting excellent language proficiency standards based on the Canadian Language Benchmarks. Contact us for more information.
