SINP Language Eligibility

SINP Language Eligibility

To apply to SINP an applicant can submit one of the following language test results for English/French. Because Canada requires all applicants to show minimum language skill level to live, work, settle and or study in Canada. Thus, to qualify the applicant must have a minimum SINP Language Eligibility of CLB 4.

Besides, in addition to the above, the applicant must meet the terms of the SINP sub-streams they are applying for. So, to meet the language terms of SINP the applicant must have a valid test result as proof of their language skills in English or French. Also, language test results are only valid for 2 years.
