In the National Capital Region, Alliance Française Ottawa is the only accredited examination center for tests (TEF, TCF) and diplomas (DELF-DALF) certified by the French government and internationally recognized.
The DELF (Diplôme d’Études en Langue Française) and the DALF (Diplôme Approfondi de Langue Française) are official diplomas awarded by the French National Ministry of Education to certify the competency of candidates from outside of France in the French language. The DELF and DALF qualifications are under the authority of the CIEP (Centre International d’Études Pédagogiques).
These exams (DELF and DALF) are composed of six independent diplomas corresponding to the six levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL).
DELF and DALF diplomas are independent, so candidates register directly for the examination of their choice. At each level, four skills are evaluated: listening, speaking, reading and writing.
DELF junior A1
DELF junior A2
DELF junior B1
DELF junior B2

After the identity check, the head of the official centre or the invigilator(s) will direct the candidates to their assigned seats in the examination room.
Exams are paper-based. Candidates must leave their piece of ID visibly on the table for the entirety of the test so that identity checks can be performed throughout the test.

During the entirety of the exams, communication amongst candidates or the outside will not be permitted.
Candidates arriving late will not be allowed in the examination room once the examination has started.
In the event of fraud or misconduct by a candidate (disturbing the examination procedure, communication or attempt to communicate with other candidates or the outside…), candidates expose themselves to immediate removal from the examination room as well as a ban from taking the test for a period that will be determined by the CIEP.
