More about IELTS

 

 

Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) made it mandatory for immigration candidates in most economic categories to prove their official language proficiency by taking a standardized language test.

 

IRCC accepts two English tests: The CELPIP, and the IELTS. The IELTS is the test most accessible internationally to candidates and is generally considered the most popular English test for higher education and migration. The IELTS version accepted for immigration to Canada is IELTS General Training (IELTS Academic is NOT accepted by IRCC).

 

IELTS measures your English Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking skills, and assesses your ability to communicate for work, study or life in an English speaking country. The points candidates receive under immigration scoring schemes are tied directly to their language test results. As a consequence, the performance of the candidate in the language test becomes a crucial component in the quest to meet visa eligibility criteria. 

 

IRCC is matching language test results with corresponding proficiency levels described by the Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) standard. IELTS score bands are matched with the CLB scale. Finally, immigration points under both the FSWP selection grid and the Express Entry Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), are matched with the CLB scale, and awarded to candidates based on their test results. 

 

Under the current processing rules for professional immigrants to Canada there are two benchmarks  with special significance:

CLB 7 - represents the mandatory minimum proficiency level acceptable for the candidate’s first Canadian official language (the language, English or French, in which the candidate claims stronger command).

CLB 9 - represents advanced language skills and a result that is likely to significantly increase the ranking score of an Express Entry candidate, ultimately pushing up the position of their Express Entry profile in the Government of Canada online pool, and increasing the likelihood they will receive an Invitation to Apply for Permanent Residence.
