In News

CAEL Fee Change effective January 1, 2018

Effective Tuesday, September 4th, 2018, the fee for the CAEL CE Test will increase from CAD $225.00 + tax to CAD $268.00 + tax for all test sittings scheduled on or after November 1st, 2018. Test takers who register for a CAEL CE Test scheduled before November 1st, 2018 will pay the current fee.  This fee change will ensure that CAEL CE continues to be an industry-leading English language proficiency test for individuals looking to work and study in Canada, and remains the most affordable option for test takers applying to Canadian post-secondary institutions and professional organizations. To register for a CAEL CE sitting scheduled before the fee change, visit our registration page. If you have any questions, please contact info@cael.ca.

In addition to updating the CAEL CE registration fee, September 2018 marks the first month in which all CAEL  sittings will be computer-delivered, with the retirement of CAEL (Paper Edition) on August 31, 2018. Paragon remains committed to CAEL (Paper Edition) test takers:

  • All CAEL (Paper Edition) scores will remain valid for two years after they were issued, and will still be accepted by Canadian post-secondary institutions.
  • Test takers who require additional score reports for CAEL (Paper Edition) will still be able to order score reports, request re-evaluations, and view test scores through their CAEL accounts.
