What is the ILSAT?
The Interpreter Language & Skills Assessment Tool (ILSAT) is a provincially-recognized language proficiency test to evaluate a candidate’s linguistic and interpretation skills in both English and another language. Developed by the Ministry of Citizenship & Immigration, the ILSAT is a formal language test for interested candidates to acquire professional certification as a community interpreter in various social service sectors.
Please note, successful completion of the ILSAT is a requirement for students enrolled in the Language Interpreter Training Program (LITP) at community colleges.
In addition to provincially-recognized core interpreter training, successful completion of the ILSAT is part of the process for language interpreters to become certified and qualified to work for INCommunities Language Interpretation Services.
The test is comprised of performing consecutive interpretation and sight translation in both English and another language. Successful candidates must achieve a 75% overall average.
INCommunities is an approved site for ILSAT testing. For more information or to book a test, please contact our Intake & Outreach Liaison at: firstname.lastname@example.org or (905) 682 1900 ext. 217.
