With funding from Citizenship and Immigration Canada and Ontario’s Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration, training sessions for LINC assessors on the Canadian Language Benchmark Placement Test (CLBPT) continued to be organized across Canada and conducted by our national team of regional trainers. To date, sessions have been held in Calgary (AB), Edmonton (AB), Oakville (ON), Ottawa (ON), Moncton (NB), and St. John’s (NL).
In addition, the CLBPT Flyer “Understanding your CLBPT results”, which has been translated into the following ten languages: Chinese, Spanish, Filipino/Tagalog, Tamil, Urdu, Arabic, Persian/Farsi, Russian, Punjabi and Korean, is now in the process of being printed. Through funding from Ontario’s Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration, copies of the flyer in each language will be distributed to assessment centres in Ontario in the coming months. As well, it will be made available on our website: www.language.ca for easy downloading and printing to give to clients/learners.
