Most applications for Canadian immigration require foreign nationals to provide language test results. In order to obtain permanent residency in Canada, you must show that you are proficient in English or French. 

Getting a high score on your language test is also one of the best ways to raise your CRS score and increase your chances of successfully immigrating to Canada.

The following language tests are admissible for Canadian immigration applications

  • CELPIP: Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program
  • IELTS General Training Test: International English Language Testing System
  • TEF Canada: Test d’évaluation de français
  • TCF Canada: Test de connaissance du français

In Canada, IELTS tests are currently available in British Columbia (BC), Alberta, and Manitoba.

Ontario has announced plans to continue to push for the reopening of businesses, which could include language testing centres.
