Acceptance of Pearson Test of English (PTE) Core for Canadian Immigration

Publish Date: 01/02/2024

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has included the Pearson Test of English (PTE) Core as an accepted language proficiency test for various Canadian immigration pathways.

The acceptance of PTE Core extends to all immigration programs, except the Student Direct Stream (SDS).

  • This policy shift allows candidates in the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), Express Entry managed programs, and those requiring a language test for other immigration purposes (excluding SDS) to opt for the PTE Core.
  • Notably, the PTE Core replaces the previously approved PTE Essential test, which had been sanctioned for Canadian immigration in the preceding year.

Below is the table comparison between the PTE Core tests to the Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB).
