Welcome to IELTS Victoria, the official IELTS Test Centre for Vancouver Island, British Columbia. The Test Centre is located on the premises of Global Village Victoria, member of the distinguished Global Village English Centres group of schools.

As well as being Victoria’s first and only official IDP IELTS Test Centre, we also offer full-time, part-time and evening classes in IELTS preparation. IELTS Victoria is ideally situated in the center of the capital city of British Columbia, Canada, only a minute walk from central public transit routes, and seconds away from Victoria’s picturesque inner harbour, outdoor cafes, pubs, boutiques, restaurants and shopping malls. Also, Vancouver and Seattle are only 2 to 3 hours travel time away.

The Test Centre is well-established and has been serving candidates since 2011. Our centre staff are committed to customer service and providing the best possible conditions for candidates to do well on their IELTS test. In addition to our Victoria location, IELTS Victoria also conducts regular testing in Nanaimo at Vancouver Island University (VIU)  to serve up-island communities such as Campbell River, Courtney, Parksville, Ladysmith and Duncan.


Since 1989, IELTS has been proven and trusted worldwide to provide a secure, global, authentic and customer-focused test which measures true-to-life ability to communicate in English.

IELTS is jointly owned by British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia and Cambridge English Language Assessment.

Over 9,000 educational institutions, government agencies and professional organizations across over 140 countries worldwide recognize IELTS test scores as a trusted and valid indicator of ability to communicate in English.

In Canada, IELTS is used as a measure of English language proficiency for immigration, skilled worker applications, university entrance requirements, Masters programs, and other professional designations.

It is an efficient, fair and accurate assessment of the English language for a multitude of purposes. With over 2.2 million tests taken last year, IELTS is one of the fastest growing English Language tests in the world, and sets the standard for integrity, research and innovation.
