Two distinct versions of the CELPIP—the CELPIP-General and the CELPIP-General LS—have been developed because the exam is used for a variety of reasons and prospective candidates have a wide range of requirements.
Reading, writing, listening comprehension, and oral communication are the four facets of the English language that are evaluated during the CELPIP-General examination.

It is designed for individuals who are applying for permanent residency or citizenship in Canada.
CELPIP-General LS places its only emphasis on the development of listening and speaking abilities. It is intended for people who need to demonstrate their competency in the English language simply in terms of their hearing and speaking skills, but who do not require testing in their reading and writing abilities. This version of the test is recognized by IRCC for applications for Canadian citizenship and immigration, and it is frequently utilized by individuals who already have a strong command of the English language but who need to demonstrate their capacity in the areas of hearing and speaking.
