La Cité Collégiale has developed a Bilingual Proficiency Framework (BPF) to:

  • determine people’s bilingual proficiency with respect to the realities of a particular profession in Ontario;
  • provide training in bilingual proficiency according to various predetermined employment sectors;
  • increase the chances of getting work with employers requiring a particular level of bilingual proficiency;
  • add an essential element to the hiring process and possible promotion;
  • provide employers with access to the BPF’s Repository and exemplars for use in hiring and promoting employees.

The Bilingual Proficiency Framework includes the basic elements of bilingual proficiency based on the specific language needs in the fields of Health care, Tourism, and Administration. Access to the online repository allows the general public to understand different levels of bilingual proficiencies based on the professions offered.
