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)
