The International English language Testing System (IELTS) is a test developed by the world’s leading experts in language assessment on four key English language skills: listening, reading, writing and speaking.

With IELTS, you can go anywhere in Canada. Every organization sets its own entry requirements. In some cases both versions of IELTS may be accepted. Learn more about IELTS at www.ielts.org
