Second language evaluation in the public service

Get information on language testing and language requirements in the public service.


All face-to-face operations such as second language evaluations (reading, writing and oral), occupational tests, managerial and leadership assessments, counselling and coaching sessions, etc., are postponed at all PSC test centres until further notice due to COVID-19.

Tests of Oral Proficiency administered by telephone will continue but priority will be given to departments staffing positions that are related to the COVID-19 situation or that ensure the effective functioning of the Government of Canada.

Please wait for the test centre to contact you to confirm your new testing date.
