The JLPT was held at York University for the first time in
Toronto in 1997. The test has been hosted by the Japanese

is also a joint event by Japanese language professionals at
several universities in Ontario.
The JLPT has been revamped to offer five proficiency levels, N1 (most advanced) - N5 (basic)
In 2017 the number of the registrants is 586, which is the

We sincerely apologize for the inconveniences caused
by the totally unexpected power outage during the test
on Sunday. We were not given any clear explanation as
to what caused it, so it was quite frustrating for us
We truly appreciated your patience and understanding,
however. You were great.
I hope this negative experience did not affect your
performance on the test very much.
I wish you a nice holiday season and a happy new year!
All the best.
