Educational Credential Assessment (ECA)
The ECA is for formal academic/technical education.
An ECA issued by IQAS:
- is valid for Express Entry for 5 years
- does not mean that your credentials are recognized for licensure in Canada
- does not guarantee a job or successful immigration application; but, if you are successful with your immigration application, this assessment may also be used when applying for jobs
- to learn more about an ECA, visit the IRCC website Educational credential assessment: What it is
