If you are applying to immigrate to Quebec and want to be tested to gain formal recognition for your competency in the French language you
can choose from a range of options.
The Ministry of Immigration and Cultural Communities (MICC) in Quebec has accredited the TCF (Test de Connaissance du Français) for Quebec as a test of competency in the French language for the purposes of an official immigration application. Furthermore, the Quebec authorities also recognise the TCF, accompanied by an oral test, as well as the DELF (Diplôme d’Etudes en Langue Française) and DALF (Diplôme Approfondi de Langue Française).
These qualifications have been developed by the "Centre International d’Etudes Pédagogiques" (CIEP), a national public institution under the French Ministry of Education. All of the tests conform to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL).
The “TCF for Quebec”, has been specially designed to be consistent with the standards of the Ministry of Immigration (MICC) of
Quebec, and is only intended for people wishing to settle in Quebec. The TCF allows you to evaluate your level of French. The Alliance
Française de Sydney is the only accredited institution in Sydney to deliver this test.
Your TCF for Quebec certificate is only valid for your immigration application. You cannot use it, for example, for admission to a French university.
