Canadian Adult Education Credential (CAEC)

Did you know that the General Education Development (GED) program that was offered in Canada for decades has ended and been replaced with CAEC?

CAEC stands for Canadian Adult Education Certificate.

Completing the CAEC tests gives adults the equivalent of a high school diploma. The tests are:

  • English Language Reading
  • English Language Writing
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Social Studies

Getting a CAEC can lead to several different opportunities, for example:

  • Get accepted to college
  • Improve employment opportunities
  • Personal achievement

At CanLearn, we know that preparing for the CAEC tests on your own can be challenging.

We can help.

Our adult learning programs can help you study and ensure that your reading, writing, math, spelling, and grammar skills are up to scratch.

In addition to preparing for the CAEC tests, CanLearn adult literacy programs can help you:

  • Learn or improve skills such as reading, writing, and numeracy regardless of your current level
  • Learn how to learn
  • Learn how to support your child’s learning at school
  • Improve your well-being: feel purposeful and optimistic, build connections with others, develop a sense of belonging

Our programs are:

  • Offered in small classes or one-to-one tutoring
  • Offered via in-person classes or virtually

The enrollment is ongoing from September to May.

No matter where you are on your learning journey, we can help you meet your goals!
