A Message From Paragon Testing Enterprises:

We understand English-language testing is an important part of your journey to permanent residency, citizenship, and study in Canada.

As a result of COVID-19 precautions, we have halted a significant volume of testing. Please see below for an update on necessary suspension of testing in Canada and the US, current testing availability in other markets, and our commitment to supporting you during these difficult times with additional free online instruction and reduced study material prices.

Please know that we are also working to ensure that once COVID-19 precautions have been lifted, you will be able to resume your testing schedule.

COVID-19 Prevention Closures

Paragon is committed to protecting the health and safety of our test takers, employees, and test centre personnel. We have been closely following updates from health authorities and feel that the most appropriate action to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in Canada and the United States is to suspend all testing for CELPIP in those two countries starting on March 18, 2020. We anticipate resuming testing on April 17, 2020. For more information about our test closures, click below.

Transferring Your Test Sitting

In order to accomodate test takers affected by precautionary COVID-19 test centre closures, you can now transfer your test sittings in your account:


1. Sign in to your CELPIP Account
2. Under the heading "Upcoming test" click "Actions" and then click "Transfer to a different sitting." You will then be able to transfer your test to your preferred date, time, and location.
3. Follow all prompted steps and click "Place Order" to complete the transfer.
