Ontario Applicants Would Find It Easy To Access Citizenship As CIC accepts Ontario Language Training Certificates Now.
Chandigarh, India -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/05/2014 -- Canada’s Citizenship and Immigration Minister Chris Alexander announced on 29 January, 2014 that from 30 January 2014 onwards, Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) has started accepting Ontario language certificates as a proof of language ability for the intention of applying for citizenship. The acceptance of this language certificate has open windows for Ontario applicants.
Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) has their own list of acceptable evidences. The list includes results from the third party tests, academic certificates, and certification from Government-aided language programs. Now, Ontario’s provincial Adult Non-Credit Language Training Program is accepted as evidence, which proves that the applicants meet language knowledge requirements.
According to the Canadian Citizenship Act of 1947, the adult applicants have had to furnish proof that they had adequate knowledge of English or French. It was a key determinant in order to be eligible for citizenship. Canadian Language Benchmarks / Niveau de compétence linguistique canadiens (CLB/NCLC) are the nationally recognized benchmarks to test the proficiency of adult immigrants in both the official languages that includes English and French. The candidate should reach level CLB 4 in speaking and listening skills.
Quote by Chris Alexander, Canada’s Minister of Citizenship and Immigration
“Becoming a Canadian citizen comes with certain rights and responsibilities and a readiness to participate in Canadian society. Our government believes that the key to successful integration is the knowledge of an official language. We are proud to add Ontario language training certificates to our list of accepted evidence, which will now provide Ontario applicants with another option to demonstrate that they meet the language requirement for Canadian citizenship.”
Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) plays a major role in strengthening Canada’s economic, social and cultural prosperity. Along with ensuring Canadian safety and security, it manages one of the major and most liberal programs in the world.
