What is an ECA?

An educational credential assessment (ECA) is a process by which international academic qualifications are reviewed, verified, and compared to Canadian educational standards.

An ECA report outlines an applicant’s credential(s) and states its Canadian equivalent. ECA reports can be used for both immigration and/or general purposes.

Comparative Education Service (CES) is an agency that offers educational credential assessment services along with an ECA report.
