To be eligible for the WES Gateway Program, you must:

  • Be currently living in Canada
  • Be referred by a WES partner agency. You can find the partner agency closest to you here.
  • Be educated in at least one of the following countries: Afghanistan, Eritrea, Iraq, Syria, Turkey, Ukraine, or Venezuela
  • Be unable to get your academic documents from your institution, but have proof of your academic attainment, such as an academic transcript, degree certificate or professional license.

WES corroborates these claims using the best information and resources available. If only a partial transcript is available, WES may be able to reconstruct the degree profile and likely courses to achieve that credential.

If you have your academic documents in a sealed envelope, WES encourages you to apply through the standard process. Learn about the standard process here.
