The JLPT was held at York University for the first time in Toronto in 1997. The test has been hosted by the Japanese Section of York University on behalf of the Japan Foundation. It 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 largest in Canada. Thank you very much for your enthusiasm in participating in the JLPT.
Only the on-line application is accepted.
No JLPT is hosted in the summer at this site.

Bulletin: Power outage

Dear test-takers,
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 too. 
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.
Norio Ota
