The IELTS (International English Language Training System) is the standardized test that Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) recognizes as proof of English language ability for immigration purposes.
Some Canadian immigration applicants are required to take the IELTS to demonstrate that they have sufficient English language ability to integrate into Canadian society and the Canadian work force.
Take this opportunity to practice your English and familiarize yourself with the IELTS test.
The four sections of the IELTS (Listening, Reading, Writing, and Speaking) are measured on a Band Score system from 1-9. To receive the maximum number of points for English language ability on a Federal Skilled Worker application, applicants who are required to take the IELTS, must obtain a Band score of minimum 6.0 in Reading, Writing, Listening, Speaking.
