The TEFaQ Test is also called the "TEF pour le Québec", 'TEF for Quebec' or e-TEFaQ exam (the computer version) is one of the French tests that is accepted as proof of sufficient knowledge of French to live and work in Quebec by the Quebec Visa & Immigration department. 

It's important that you know French language if you want to live in Quebec, Canada. Why? Read here...

Note: In some countries, a specific TEFaQ Quebec test may not be available. In such cases, you can register for the regular TEF Test, and sit only for these 2 components:

  1. Comprehension Orale (Listening Comprehension) and 
  2. Expression Orale (Speaking) 

TEFAQ Test Format

The TEFaQ test (e-TEFaQ as well) has only 2 components: 

        - 60  multiple choice questions

        - Duration: 40 minutes

        - 2 questions

        - Duration: 35 minutes

TEFAQ Test Registration

TEFaQ tests can be taken anytime throughout the year. Approved TEFaQ Test Centres are allowed to hold as many examination sessions as they wish in the last 10 days of each month. 

You can take the TEFaQ test as many times as you like. However, there must be a gap of 2 months between examination sessions. 

Your TEFaQ certificate has a limited validity period of only 1 year.

Your TEFaQ certificate will usually be available approximately 20 days after you took the test. You should collect it from the test centre at which you took the TEFaQ exam.

At the same time, the CIEP will send your results to the Ministry of Immigration (MICC) in Quebec directly. You should still include your TEFaQ certificate in your immigration application, even if the Ministry has your results. 

Contact your nearby Approved TEFaQ Test Centre to get more specific information about the following: 

  • the dates of examination sessions 
  • the registration procedure 
  • the examination centre location
  • the examination fee
