Educational credential assessment: What it is
An Educational Credential Assessment is a report by an independent company that evaluates your foreign education. For Express Entry, we use this report to make sure that your foreign degree, diploma, certificate (or other proof of your credential) is valid and equal to a Canadian one.
You must include your assessment results and reference number in your Express Entry profile.
Your assessment may help when you’re looking for a job. But, it doesn’t guarantee that:
- you’ll get a job in your field, or at a certain level
- you’ll get a license to practice in a regulated profession (job)
If you plan to work in a regulated job, you must get your license in the province or territory that you plan to settle in.
