To gain a Canadian visa, you will need to demonstrate your English abilities to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
IELTS is one of the world’s most popular high-stakes English language tests, with over 3 million tests taken in the past year. And it’s the English test of choice for educational organisations, professional associations and employers across Canada. In fact, all universities and colleges in Canada accept IELTS, as well as all professional associations that have set minimum language requirements for professional registration.
What score do you need?
The IELTS score you need depends on the requirements of your visa, and the organisation where you plan to study or work.
IELTS assesses your English proficiency on a scale from 1–9 in four skills: Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. You have a choice of two tests – IELTS Academic or IELTS General Training – depending on the requirements set by the organisation where you plan to work or study.
You can take an IELTS test in more than 40 locations across Nigeria. There is a test centre in each state’s capital city and in many major cities.
