Now, you only need to submit the highest degree for Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) for immigration to Canada.
Your ECA allows you to show how your education compares to Canadian education. Immigrants now will only have to submit their highest degree ECA report to Canadian immigration officials and future employers.
Up till now, Canadian immigration applicants had to submit the ECA document verifying the validity of all their foreign certificates, diplomas, and degrees.
In short, World Education Services or WES is one of the certified providers by the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to handle ECA documents.
WES recently announced that applicants henceforth would only have to submit the highest completed credential for evaluation.
Candidates are now discouraged from submitting any additional educational documents for evaluation as it only slows down the process.
It means that those who have done a Ph.D. will no longer have to submit their master’s degree or bachelor’s degree for assessment. Their Ph.D. document will suffice.
The same goes for master’s degrees and bachelor’s degrees.
WES does not require documentation submitted in French to be translated into English. However, all documentation in other languages will have to be translated.
There may be some exceptions to the above guidelines.
Some Canadian immigration applicants from India may have to submit additional credential documentation. Those sending a master’s degree or postgraduate diploma will also have to submit their bachelor’s degree.
People with Master of Engineering, Master of Technology, Master of Education, and Master of Philosophy, alongside Ph.D.s are exempted from the above rule.
Moreover, Express Entry candidates applying with a spouse can also earn additional CRS points if the partner also gets an ECA done. Points are allotted if the credential is equivalent to Canadian high school or post-secondary education.
