CIC Immigration Programs and Upgrades for Licensure
World Education Services is a designated Education Credential Assessment (ECA) agency for the Canadian government since 2013. Candidates applying as skilled immigrants are required to submit their academic credentials for a credential assessment.
Applicants may need to upgrade their report for licensure, higher education or employment purposes in Canada, after receiving the WES ECA package.
- WES has streamlined its process so that ECA applicants can upgrade to a basic document by document (DxD) or course by course credential evaluation (CxC) for a fee of $50 or $100 respectively.
- The upgrade fee includes assessing any new academic credentials completed while waiting to immigrate to Canada.
- Professional licensing bodies are encouraged to inform licensure candidates of this upgrade service.
