What is ECA Verification


An Educational Credential Assessment,  (ECA Verification) is a process that verifies and evaluates the authenticity and equivalency of your academic credentials with Canadian standards. It is a crucial step for individuals seeking educational and career opportunities in Canada.


Why is ECA Verification needed


An ECA Verification is required to demonstrate the comparability of your educational qualifications to Canadian standards. It enhances your chances of success when applying for immigration programs, educational institutions, and employment opportunities in Canada.

The IRCC Designated Organizations for ECA Verification Services

The Canadian government has designated several organizations to provide ECA Verification services, including:

  2. International Credential Assessment Service of Canada (ICAS)

  3. Comparative Education Service (CES)

How to apply for an ECA Verification report

The ECA verification process typically involves the following steps:

  1. An application, along with the required documents and fees, must be submitted to the designated organization as the first step in the ECA process.

  2. Verification of documents: The organization will verify the authenticity of the documents and make sure they meet assessment requirements.

  3. Educational qualifications will be evaluated by the organization based on factors such as the level of study, duration, and content of the program. As a result of the assessment, a Canadian equivalency report will be developed, which will detail how the educational credential compares to the Canadian equivalent.

  4. Report delivery: The completed ECA report will be delivered to the applicant and any other designated institutions or organizations, such as employers or educational institutions.

Depending on the designated organization and the purpose of use, the specific requirements and fees for ECA verification can differ.
