          Dear jaggy,
          dnt be confused CLB and ielts both are different. they will convert ur ielts score to CLB (canadian language benchmark).

          Quoting Qorax post below:-


          Language Skills : Minimum Ability for PR application : Year-2013

          Hi,

          Here it goes...

          Previously there was no "qualifying ability threshold" set by CIC for applying, however it was 'expected' that an applicant would score around Avg Band-6, but was not mandatory as long as s/he met the total 67 points. Though individual assessments were the norm -- but it wasn't judicially stable.

          However, with the present changes -- an applicant now must score around Avg Band-7 or above to be 'eligible' for PR processing. This is NOW "mandatory".

          Pls. check that gazette notification. They r Initially setting the score at CLB/NCLC 7. Which corresponds to Avg Band-7 if u see the "language grid" below:



          Thus, if u NOW don't get "Moderate Level" in ur IELTS (which is: Listening=7band, Reading=6band, Writing=6band, Speaking=6band : Total Avg=7band) ur application is Kaput!

          We have a discussion in the sticky thread on new FSW rules.   From there, the following post may help:

          HOW TO ESTIMATE LANGUAGE POINTS FROM IELTS SCORES
          (under the proposed FSWC program)

          Given the number of questions on calculating language points, I put together the following tables.   Just look up your IELTS band for each section and add up the FSWC points.

          Listening
          IELTS       CLB         FSWC POINTS
          5.5 or less <=6         Not eligible for FSWC
          6.0            7            4 points
          6.5            7            4 points
          7.0            7            4 points
          7.5+          8+          5 or 6 points (depending on where cut-off is defined for CLB 8 vs CLB 9 equivalency,
                                                           IELTS 7.5 is 5pts and IELTS band(s) approaching 9.0 would be 6pts)

          Reading
          IELTS       CLB         FSWC POINTS
          5.5 or less <=6          Not eligible for FSWC
          6.0            7            4 points
          6.5+          8+          5 or 6 points (depending on where cut-off is defined for CLB 8 vs CLB 9 equivalency,
                                                           IELTS 6.5 is 5pts and IELTS band(s) approaching 9.0 would be 6pts)
                   
          Writing
          IELTS       CLB         FSWC POINTS
          5.5 or less  <=6      Not eligible for FSWC
          6.0            7            4 points
          6.5+          8+         5 or 6 points (depending on where cut-off is defined for CLB 8 vs CLB 9 equivalency,
                                                           IELTS 6.5 is 5pts and IELTS band(s) approaching 9.0 would be 6pts)
                 
          Speaking
          IELTS       CLB         FSWC POINTS
          5.5 or less <=6          Not eligible for FSWC
          6.0            7            4 points
          6.5+          8+          5 or 6 points (depending on where cut-off is defined for CLB 8 vs CLB 9 equivalency,
                                                           IELTS 6.5 is 5pts and IELTS band(s) approaching 9.0 would be 6pts)

          The FSWC points assume they continue using IELTS and that the 'equivalencies' stay similar based on:

          In the proposed FSWC plan:
          CLB/NCLC 7: 4 points per ability
          CLB/NCLC 8: 5 points per ability
          CLB/NCLC 9: 6 points per ability

          and that previously (per OP-6):
          Basic was given by CLB/NCLC 4 or 5 gave 1 point per ability up to 2 points max
          For IELTS test results received on or after November 28, 2008, that was equivalent to:
          Listening Reading Writing Speaking
          4.5 - 5.0 3.5 - 4.5 4.0 - 5.0 4.0 - 5.0

          Moderate was approx. CLB/NCLC 6 or 7 and gave 2 pts per ability
          Listening Reading Writing Speaking
          5.5 - 7.0 5.0 - 6.0 5.5 - 6.0 5.5 - 6.0

          High was CLB/NCLC 8 +
          Listening Reading Writing Speaking
          7.5 - 9.0 6.5 - 9.0 6.5 - 9.0 6.5 - 9.0
          Approx. CLB/NCLC 6 or 7


          NOTE:  This updated chart clears up the areas where the previous chart had uncertainty (e.g., 'maybe' categories for lower ranges) based on the OP-25 chart in section 9.7 (much clearer than the ranges in OP6!)   It is now clear that the minimum score for CLB Level 7 is 6.0 across the board (not 6.5 for listening as I had estimated using linear distribution within the range) Smiley

          These are just some thoughts based on the information available, what I've read, and my experience.  I am not an expert; if you want the facts, cic.gc.ca has a wealth of information.  Good luck with your application!  Hope you have a wonderful day *smile*

          Could the above estimates have been superseded by more specific figures in the table found in the Canadian Experience Class application guide (cic. gc. ca / english / information / applications / guides / 5609ETOC. asp), under "Using your test results"?  It lists the IELTS equivalents for CLBs from 4 to 8.  Unfortunately it does not specify the IELTS equivalents for CLB 9.
