Canada is becoming an increasingly attractive destination for IELTS test takers wishing to work, study or emigrate overseas, with recent global surveys putting it second only to the U.S. as a desired destination for people looking to emigrate. At the same time, the Canadian Government has increased its immigration targets up to 2020, boosting opportunities for moving to Canada.
As the most widely used test of English for migration to Australia, Canada and New Zealand, the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) helps provide Singaporean with the opportunity to fulfil their ambition of going to Canada to work or study. British Council in Singapore is launching a new Canada campaign 'You CAN Get There' in July. 'You CAN Get There' aims to provide individuals with all they need to know about taking the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) and how it can help them to study, work or emigrate to Canada.
IELTS is the world's most popular high-stakes English language test, with over three million tests taken in the past year, and it is recognised by more than 10,000 universities, schools, employers and immigration bodies.
In Canada, IELTS is the English test of choice for educational organisations, professional associations and employers across Canada.
IELTS is accepted and recognised by over 350 Canadian organisations for study or work purposes.
It was the first test to be recognised by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) and Immigration Quebec as proof of English language proficiency for Express Entry (Skilled Immigrants), Quebec-selected skilled workers and the Provincial Nominee program.
With the IELTS General training version of the test, test takers wishing to emigrate to Canada can apply through the Canadian Express Entry system.
