The goal is to have Portfolio-Based Language Assessment (PBLA) in place in Language Training for Newcomers to Canada (LINC) and CLIC programs across Canada by 2016.
PBLA is being introduced to LINC through a phased-in approach that stresses professional development, mentoring and support.
Some provinces are also planning to implement PBLA in government-funded English as a Second Language (ESL) programs. [NOTE: Links to provincial information can be added over time]
