What is it?

The TEF and TEFAQ are two French proficiency exams officially recognized by Immigration Canada and the Department of Immigration, Diversity and Inclusion in Quebec (MIDI). TEF Canada is the test used in an application for Canadian citizenship when you are already in possession of permanent residence; the TEFAQ is used for obtaining the CSQ (Quebec Selection Certificate) to request your permanent residence.

Important: It is not the responsibility of Edu-inter to know which test you must pass. You must contact the CIC (Citizenship and Immigration Canada) and / or MIDI (Ministry of Immigration, Diversity and Inclusion) to know which test you must register. You must consult the above web links.

To prepare for these two French tests and increase your chances of success, Edu-inter offers optional weeks of French courses and workshops (4 weeks) and preparation TEF / TEFAQ (1-2 weeks)
