The Canadian Union of Postal Workers has announced a potential strike action on Monday, October 22. In the event of a postal strike, IELTS Test Centres will not be able to mail results to recognizing organizations or Test Report Forms (TRF) to candidates.

Strike action would affect the mailing of current results for tests from October 11th onwards and extra TRF requests for the duration of any stoppage in service from Canada Post.

For urgent mailing of your test results or additional TRFs, centres are able to offer courier delivery. Please contact your centre for further information.
