Healthcare professionals are in high demand and TOEIC® test-takers actively seeking to obtain a professional license in Canada are required to submit proof of English proficiency. TOEIC® is an approved test for two key organizations:
Organizations that are currently accepting TOEIC® test scores in Canada are The Canadian Association of Physiotherapy Regulators, who is accepting scores from the L&R exam and S&W exam. Also accepting TOEIC® scores is The College of Nurses of Ontario, which has approved L&R scores but request that candidates complete the Speaking component from an exam other than TOEIC®. ETS encourages the EPNs to relay this information to candidates wishing to work in Canada. Updates will be sent if additional organizations in Canada accept TOEIC® scores.
ETS, an industry leader in English-language assessment for over 60 years, designed the TOEIC® tests to measure workplace English skills. For more than 30 years, over 10,000 organizations (businesses, government agencies, universities and vocational schools) in 120 countries rely on the TOEIC® tests to demonstrate English proficiency and help them get ahead of the competition. More than 6 million TOEIC® tests were administrated in 2011.
