Edu-inter has been an assessment center approved and mandated by la Chambre de commerce et de l’industrie de Paris ïle-de-France (CCIP) since 2016 and we offer the TEF Canada and the TEFAQ. All exams take place in person at our school located in Quebec City.

What is it?

The TEF Canada (French evaluation test adapted to Canada) and the TEFAQ (French evaluation test for access to Quebec) are two French proficiency tests officially recognized by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) and by the Ministry of Immigration, Francisation and Integration of Quebec (MIFI).

Important: It is not the responsibility of Edu-inter to know which of the two tests you are asked to take. You must communicate directly with the CIC (Citizenship and Immigration Canada) and/or the MIFI (Ministry of Immigration, Francisation and Integration) so that they can tell you which test and which exams you must take and register for.
