The Centre for Canadian Language Benchmarks (CCLB) is the national standard-setting body for the Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB) and and Niveaux de compétence linguistique canadiens (NCLC). CCLB supports and promotes the use of these national standards in immigration, education and training, workplace and community settings.

The CLB and NCLC are recognized as the official Canadian standards for describing, measuring and recognizing English and French language proficiency of persons in Canada, as well as of immigrants and other persons destined for Canada. They provide a common language for the entire immigrant-serving community.

CCLB is a national, not-for-profit organization established in 1998 to support the CLB and NCLC. It is governed by a nationally representative, multi-stakeholder board of directors including representation from ESL and FSL experts and language assessors.
