Help Centre what do you need help with?

What language level do I need when I apply for citizenship?

If you’re between 18 and 54 years old when you sign your application, you must show an adequate knowledge of speaking and listening skills in English or French.

An “adequate knowledge” is equivalent to level 4 in Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB) or Niveaux de compétence linguistique canadien (NCLC).
