Ontario GED® Testing
The Canadian GED® is administered separately by each province. The GEDs Canada awards to successful candidates also vary from province to province, since they are awarded by the province’s government. The GED Ontario diploma awarded to successful test-takers is called the Ontario High School Equivalency Certificate. In Ontario, the GED test is administered by the Independent Learning Centre, and the Canadian GED tests in Ontario are offered in English and French.
