The Occupational English Test (OET) opens a third test venue in Canada with Centre of English Studies Toronto

OET, the English language test for healthcare professionals, will be available at a new Canadian venue from August 2019. The new test venue in downtown Toronto will be managed by CES Exams Toronto.

OET is an Australian-developed English language test that assesses the language proficiency of healthcare professionals. It provides assessment of all four language skills – listening, reading, writing and speaking – through test material designed to reflect real healthcare scenarios.

Robin Adams, President of CES North America, said: “We are excited about this terrific opportunity to offer the OET in Toronto to health care professionals looking to pursue careers in Canada. This test offers candidates a language assessment exam specifically geared to their chosen professions.


OET CEO, Sujata Stead, said she was delighted to now have test venues in all three of Canada’s largest cities, with the new Toronto venue joining those venues already existing in Montreal and Vancouver.

“Increasing numbers of internationally educated healthcare professionals in Canada have been contacting us to request additional centres in the country and our flexible business model allows us to scale up quickly as required to meet demand,” she said.

Stead added that she was delighted to welcome CES Exams Toronto to the OET family of high-quality test venues.
