In April 2022, ILAC is operating its 1st official IELTS test in the city of Timmins, Ontario. The test will take place at Northern College, located in South Porcupine. Operated by ILAC Toronto, this new venue marks the start of ILAC’s provincial expansion in Ontario and means more accessible testing to many living outside of the Metro Toronto area. 

The new IELTS test venue will begin offering in-person testing for both the IELTS General Training and IELTS Academic test types. Each year, over 3 million of these tests are administered worldwide in 140 countries, making IELTS the most popular language proficiency test in the world. Furthermore, the test is depended upon by thousands of Canadian residents and temporary permit holders each year for applications to study, immigrate and work in Canada, and is recognized by over 11,000 organizations, including universities, colleges, governments and professional regulatory bodies in Canada and around the world.

In addition, the new venue adds to ILAC’s – the International Language Academy of Canada’s – growing list of testing venues across Canada. The language school’s first test centre, ILAC Vancouver, was established in 2008 and acquired by ILAC in July 2020. It already operates in several cities across British Columbia and the Yukon, making it the largest IELTS centre in western Canada. Now, ILAC Toronto (opened October 2020) intends to replicate this success in eastern Canada.

ILAC’s new venue in Timmins will become the closest geographical IELTS testing location serving northeastern Canada, including the cities of Greater Sudbury, Sault Ste Marie and North Bay.

The test centre will continue to run tests in Timmins throughout 2022, depending on demand. Online registration is now open for the first test, taking place on Saturday, 23 April 2022.

Are you ready to take the test? ILAC offers virtual, part-time and full-time classes IELTS preparation courses in Vancouver and Toronto so you can gain the confidence and techniques needed to take the IELTS exam.
