IELTS is accepted by the Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) and by universities and colleges across Canada, so if you would like to move to Canada, IELTS is the right test for you.

Immigration to Canada

IELTS was the first test to be recognised by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) and Immigration Quebec as proof of English language proficiency for Express Entry (Skilled Immigrants), Quebec-selected skilled workers and Provincial Nominee program.

Canadian Language Requirements

The Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) is the Canadian standard used to describe, measure and recognise the language ability of adult immigrants and prospective immigrants who plan to live and work in Canada.

The table here shows how IELTS General Training test scores equate to the CLB standards.
