5) What are the language requirements for the CEC?
The language requirements depend on the type of job you are working under to be eligible for the CEC. You need to meet the requirements across all four abilities evaluated through your language test (reading, writing, listening, and speaking):
A Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) of at least 7 across all four abilities is required if you work in a NOC skill level job of 0 or A.
A CLB of at least 5 across all four abilities is the requirement if you work in a NOC skill level job of B.
