Relating Canadian Language Benchmarks to Essential Skills (2005)

A Comparative Framework

The Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB) and Essential Skills (ES) Comparative Framework is a comprehensive comparison of two national skill standards. The CLB describes communicative ability in English as a Second Language while the ES framework describes skills that facilitate an individual’s ability to perform work functions and to carry out other life tasks. The Comparative Framework compares the domain descriptions represented in the Canadian Language Benchmarks 2000 (CCLB, 2000) and in the Reader’s Guide to Essential Skills Profiles (HRSDC, 2003).

The goal of the Comparative Framework is to facilitate the integration of ES-related tasks and materials into the ESL context. The Comparative Framework provides ESL practitioners with the means to examine and understand Essential Skills descriptors and tasks through the familiar lens of the Canadian Language Benchmarks. In this document, each skill is described and compared in series of charts and tables.
