PORTFOLIO-BASED LANGUAGE ASSESSMENT (PBLA)

With funding from Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) and the Ministry of Citizenship, Immigration and International Trade (MCIIT), CCLB is committed to providing support to multiple stakeholders as PBLA rolls out across Canada.

The first PBLA cohort of Lead Instructors consisting of representatives from the Atlantic region, Ontario, Saskatchewan and Alberta are now supporting classroom instructors implement PBLA in their own classrooms.  

The second CIC cohort with approximately 105 Lead Instructors from British Columbia and Ontario and the third cohort made up of 40 lead instructors, primarily from Manitoba, completed the final steps to become certified PBLA Lead Instructors over the summer. MCIIT Cohort A (Ontario) with 50 participants also submitted their final sample portfolio assignments and obtained their PBLA Lead Instructor certification. PBLA implementation planning meetings will be taking place across Canada in September and preparations are under way for additional cohorts for both CIC and MCIIT.
