Applying to New Registration Pathway for Internationally Educated Nurses

​​Nursing Community Assessment Service (NCAS) has an agreement with the Comparative Education Service (CES), University of Toronto School of Continuing Studies to accept the credential evaluation for your nursing credential(s). Please refer to NCAS's website for more information regarding the new registration pathway. 

CES provides an online application for applicants who want to apply to the new registration pathway. The following two options are available to select from:

  • Document-by-document Application for NCAS (new application) - $149
  • Document-by-document Application for NCAS (upgrade from a CES IRCC ECA report)-Do not complete Credential 2 to 4 - $135.6

For CES applicants who already have an IRCC ECA completed and issued by our office, you only need to “upgrade” to a General Assessment. Please only complete Credential 1 as the upgrade fee covers all credentials assessed by CES for IRCC purposes.  

If you already have a completed CES General Assessment, you will only need to request Duplicate Copies of Official Transcript Sent Directly to Institutional Third-Party. There will be a limited fee of $80 plus tax.
