Take IELTS and Take Your Next Step in the Journey to Success

Delivered locally, recognized globally. IELTS is the International English Language Testing System, the world’s proven English language test. It is recognized as a secure, valid and reliable indicator of true-to-life ability to communicate in English for education, immigration and professional accreditation.

The following reasons make IELTS the most popular English Language Proficiency Test in Canada:

The test for study − All universities and colleges in Canada accept the IELTS Academic results as

 evidence of English language proficiency.

The test for professionals − Professional registration bodies in many fields accept an IELTS result,

including accounting, engineering, law, medicine, nursing, pharmacy and teaching.

The test for migration − The agreement between IELTS and the Citizenship and Immigration Canada

(CIC) applies to a range of work related visa categories. Under the agreement, IELTS General Training

can be used as evidence of English language ability for the Federal Skilled Worker Program, Canadian

Experience Class and Federal Skilled Trades Program. In addition, the test can also be used for other

programs such as the Provincial Nominee Program and the Federal Business Programs – as well as for

Citizenship purposes.

The test that’s fairer to you – IELTS is the only English language test where the Speaking test is one-on-
one with an examiner in a private room where the candidate will not be interrupted by other test takers.

No computers, no technical problems and no distractions.
