How easy is it to find a time and date for my test that suits me?

At British Council Canada, we have one simple mission. To make booking your test as easy as possible. That means plenty of well-located test centres to limit travel for test takers, plus plenty of times and dates to fit your schedule.

Offering IELTS on paper and on computer

We give test takers the option of sitting their exam on paper, or on a computer. Both exams have exactly the same content and are sat within the same test venue, but more test sittings are available and results can be returned quicker (within 3-5 days of taking your test) if you choose IELTS on computer. Learn more about IELTS on computer here.
