LANGUAGE PROFICIENCY POLICIES

Limitations on human resources require the application process and all communications with the MDA to be in English. Most Manitobans can communicate in English. You should be reasonably fluent in.

The assessment process evaluates language proficiency sufficiently to satisfy MDA registration requirement. There is no additional registration requirement for documentation on language proficiency in English.

As a guide, accepted language proficiency benchmarks for dentists, dental assistants and dental specialists include:

  • CLB (English level 7 or higher in all four skills (speaking, listening, reading, and writing);
  • TOEFL (minimum scores of 600 PBT, 250 CBT or 100 ITB); or
  • IELTS (a minimum band of 6.5 for the General test).
