What IELTS score do you need for Canada?

When you take an IELTS test you will receive an overall test score from 1–9 on the IELTS scale. You will also receive scores for each of the different sections of the test: Listening, Reading, Writing, and Speaking.

The IELTS scores you need will depend on the visa that you are applying for, and the requirements set by the organisation where you have applied to work or study.
