IRCC announces four new English language test options for Student Direct Stream applicants


Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has announced that applicants to the Student Direct Stream (SDS) will soon have four new language test options. Currently, the SDS only accepts IELTS General and IELTS Academic tests. However, starting in August 2023, eligible tests will include CELPIP General, CAEL, PTE Academic, and the TOEFL iBT Test. Applicants must demonstrate abilities in speaking, listening, reading, and writing, and applicants are required to complete the tests in person.
