The coronavirus has resulted in lockdowns in Canada and around the world, which in recent months has made it difficult for immigration candidates to complete their language tests, such as the CELPIP and IELTS General. As lockdowns ease, more CELPIP and IELTS test centres are being opened


Providers of official language tests are subject to local laws, which they comply with to ensure the health and safety of immigration candidates as well as their staff.


Canadian provinces have been announcing plans in recent weeks to relax their constraints on the lockdown. For example, Canada's largest province, Ontario, announced plans to broaden further the list of businesses that can be reopened during the upcoming days.


In India also British Council and IDP Test centres have been opened for both ‘Pen and Paper-based IELTS’ and ‘Computer Delivered IELTS’. Please refer their respective websites for more details.
