TCF Quebec (TCFQ)

The TCFQ (Test de Connaissance de Francais pour le Quebec) or TCF Quebec test is one of the tests that is accepted as a proof of proficiency in French language by the Quebec Visa & Immigration department. 

If you want to send in your application for the Quebec Skilled Worker program, you can take the TCFQ test. Your Quebec Immigration Consultant or Quebec Immigration Lawyer should be able to tell you what level you need to attain. 

Note: In some countries, a specific TCF Quebec test may not be available. In such cases, you can register for the regular TCF Test, and sit only for the Comprehension Orale (Listening Comprehension) and Expression Orale (Speaking) components.

TCF Quebec (TCFQ) Test Format

Note: There is no reading or writing. Only listening and speaking.
