The Mensa Supervised Entrance Examination: For candidates without prior evidence of their eligibility we offer a supervised qualifying test for a fee of $90 (or $70 for students providing a valid student ID from an accredited high school, university or college). Group testing sessions are held regularly in cities across Canada. Individuals achieving a qualifying score on the admission test will be invited to join Mensa. Tests can be given to anyone aged 14 or older.
Please note that Mensa Canada provides a letter to candidates indicating only whether or not the test results qualify the person for membership - an IQ result is not provided to candidates. If you would like to receive this type of specific information, then you would need to pursue testing through another means, such as a licensed psychologist.
Test fees should be prepaid online, but can be paid by cheque or money order by contacting the national office. Test fees are valid for sessions held within 1 year of purchase date, and proof of payment must be presented to the test proctor at time of testing.
Please note: you must contact your local proctor in advance (using form below) to reserve your seat at a testing session.
