Note: Not all test centres in Canada necessarily administer HSK tests on every level throughout the year. How often they give the HSK on a particular level depends on their funding and on how popular the test is in that region. While we at ImproveMandarin.Com aim to keep the published list as accurate as possible (the above list is updated yearly following the data provided by CLEC, the HSK test organizer), we suggest you contact the test centres to reconfirm available open dates and venues before you sign up for an HSK test
