The Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) is the national standards used in Canada for skilled migration programs to describe, measure and recognize the English language proficiency of potential immigrants and adult immigrants for living and working in Canada. The CLB is the most important tool for your Canada Permanent Residency application.

The CLBs are calculated on a scale of CLB 1 to CLB 10. As the level of CLB increases, the IELTS score in correspondence to CLB also increases.

‘IELTS to CLB converter for Express Entry’ is an important aspect because the bands you scored in IELTS test will correspond to your CLB bands. After all, the Canadian Immigration preference is CLB score. Every visa program for Canada skilled migration categories has different CLB eligibility. The points you scored in IELTS each category of reading, writing, listening and speaking will have a CLB band score in accordance with that.

For example: As a skilled worker applying for Express Entry programs and specifically for Federal Skilled Worker Program, the eligible language assessment test score is CLB 7 that is achieved through IELTS 6 bands in each module of reading, writing, listening and speaking.
Whereas, for other Provincial Nomination Programs like Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program or Manitoba Immigrant Nominee Program, the minimum eligible language score is CLB 5.
