CAEC in Manitoba

The Canadian Adult Education Credential (CAEC) is for Canadian adults who do not have a high school diploma but need an education credential to open new doors to training or employment opportunities.

The CAEC is a high-quality, made-in-Canada education credential and an academic  achievement indicator for adults. In Manitoba, test-takers who successfully complete the CAEC are eligible to receive a High School Equivalency Certificate. Employers, educational institutions, and others can count on the CAEC as a reliable indicator of Canadian adults’ level of educational achievement.

The CAEC replaces the GED in Manitoba.  GED testing ended in Canada effective May 3, 2024.
