AIMG Program COVID-19 Updates

2021 APPLICATION CYCLE IMPACT:

The AIMG Program recognizes that the Covid-19 pandemic could have a significant impact on potential applicants as a result of postponed examinations, uncertain timelines, and challenges with obtaining supporting documents for the 2021 Application Cycle. In an effort to support applicants, the Program is currently working with all stakeholders to determine possible modifications to the 2021 Application Cycle requirements. The AIMG Program will continue to update its website and Twitter feed regularly as more information becomes available. 
 
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time.
The AIMG Program 
 

NOTE: The AIMG Program recognizes many applicants are unable to register for IELTS exams, as in-person testing centers are suspending test registration due to the COVID-19 pandemic and other testing centres are at capacity.  In continued response to support applicants, it has been determined through discussions with stakeholders, that effective immediately, the AIMG Program will accept the IELTS Indicator as proof of English Language Proficiency. While the format and mode of delivery for the IELTS Indicator is different, the score expectation remains the same: a minimum score of 7.0 in each of the components on a single test is required.  Applicants who have already taken and submitted their IELTS results, are not required to take the IELTS Indicator. All IELTS results are to be submitted by September 30, 2020, no exceptions. 
The IELTS Indicator is a temporary solution for applicants to use for the 2021 application cycle only.
