Oral Language Assessment
The Oral Language Assessment assesses your ability to communicate orally in your second official language (French or English). A language assessor certified by the Public Service Commission administers the test, which includes questions about work-related situations.
 
In its latest format, the test is administered remotely over the internet using a web conference tool and lasts 20 to 40 minutes.
The test assesses your ability to serve Canadians in your second official language (English or French) on the job.
 
The test gets increasingly difficult, and the assessor will ask you questions designed to allow you to demonstrate which proficiency levels you meet (B-level or C-level skills).
