Migrating and working to Canada needs an IELTS exam.  You need to pass their band score as per their requirement.

The following are the test scores equivalence chart for the General Training category.

Listening

7.5 to 9.0 – (4 points)

5.5 to 7.0 – (2points)

Reading

6.5 to 9.0 – (4 points)

5.0 to 6.0 – (2points)

Writing

6.5 to 9.0 – (4 points)

5.5 to 6.0 – (2points)

Speaking

5.5 to 6.0 – (2points)

How to convert my Test Score to the Points System?

If you have the results from the IELTS test center, it indicates the score written as band score.  Given that you have achieved scores for the following  :

example:

Listening=7.5 –> 4 points
Reading  =6.5 –> 4 points
Writing   =6.0 –> 2 points
Speaking =5.5 —> 2 points

Total —->12points

Your total points will be 12, and the maximum is 16 points.

As for the Canadian points system, you have to add the 12 points to your eligibility points to achieve the minimum of 67.  So, you need 55 points from the other eligibility criteria to pass.
