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
(highest) - N5.
In 2015 the number of the applicants was 449, which was the
largest in Canada.
The on-line application is available.
No JLPT is hosted in the summer at this site.
