An educational credential assessment is used to verify that your foreign degree, diploma, or certificate (or other proof of your credential) is valid and equal to a Canadian one. There are different types of educational credential assessments. You need to get an Educational credential assessment for immigration purposes. If you got another type of educational credential assessment, you may be able to get it re-issued, depending on the type of educational credential assessment and/or issuing organization.
Who can do your assessment
You must get your assessment from an organization or a professional body designated by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada. They will give you a report that tells you what your education is equal to in Canada. CPG Recruitment Inc is a professional body that will tell you how to submit your documents to get your assessment. CPG Recruitment works through World Education Services (WES) who is a designated organization recognized by the government of Canada for all educational credential assessments since April 17th 2013.
In Canada, an Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) is a process by which the educational qualifications earned outside of Canada are evaluated to determine their Canadian equivalency.
This assessment is often required for individuals who have obtained their education credentials from foreign institutions and wish to study, work, or immigrate to Canada.
Here are some key points about Education Credential Assessment in Canada:
Purpose: The main purpose of an ECA is to provide an objective evaluation of foreign educational credentials and determine their comparability to Canadian standards.
Recognized Organizations: The designated organizations in Canada authorized to perform educational credential assessments are specified by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). Currently, the designated organizations are the following:
International Credential Assessment Service of Canada (ICAS)
World Education Services (WES)
Comparative Education Service (CES)
It's important to consult the official websites of the designated organizations or the IRCC for the most up-to-date and accurate information regarding Education Credential Assessment in Canada. The specific requirements and processes may vary depending on your individual circumstances and the purpose for which you are seeking the assessment.

A WES ECA is valid for five years from the date of issue.
For example, you can continue using it for future Express Entry profiles.
Note: ECA applicants only need to submit their highest earned credential. However, there are a few exceptions to this requirement. For more information, please read: WES Requirements for ECAs.
The ECA process typically involves submitting the required documents, including academic transcripts, diplomas, and other relevant supporting materials, to the designated organization of your choice. The organization will then assess the credentials and provide an official report that outlines the equivalency of your education in Canada.
The designated organizations evaluate various aspects of your educational credentials, such as the level of education, program duration, course content, and grading systems. They compare this information to Canadian educational standards to determine the equivalent level of education in Canada.
The ECA reports issued by designated organizations are typically valid for a certain period, usually five years. It is important to check the validity period as it may affect your application for immigration or other purposes.
Types of Assessments:
The ECAs provided by designated organizations in Canada are mainly used for immigration purposes. However, some organizations also offer general assessments for employment or educational purposes within Canada. It is important to choose the appropriate type of assessment based on your specific requirements.
Official Language Proficiency:
It is important to note that an ECA evaluates your educational credentials and not your language proficiency. If you are applying for immigration or study purposes, you may need to provide separate proof of language proficiency, such as through language tests like IELTS or CELPIP.
