Professionals and skilled workers need an assessment of the level and content of their studies in their countries of origin, in most cases. Thus, they can be recognised and homologated in Canada. The assessment of your credentials, - certificates, diplomas or academic grades -, is made for several different purposes:


Employment. To certify your educational level in comparison with the Canadian one and integrate to the job market.

Academic. For academic purposes, such as being admitted in educational programs, post high-school institutions admission (post-grades, professional specialisation, etc.)

Professional Licensing. To get the recognition of your profession and be admitted in the professional organisations.

Immigration. For immigration purposes. This assessment is advisable to start the process to get a Permanent Resident Visa.


As a result, you must take an assessment of your academic studies and a comparison of those credentials to the educational standards in Ontario. The first stage is to have your educational certificates and grades translated into English and/ or French in Quebec by a certified translator. To get a certified translator in Ontario, you can contact the Association of Interpreters and Translators of Ontario .


If your certificates are in Spanish, you must use the services of a certified translator through the following centres in Toronto:

There are several organisations where you can go to get the assessment of your educational credentials. This is a paid service. Most of those organisations  assess your diplomas and certificates just for employment, academic or immigration purposes.


Every professional organisation is usually in charge of assessing the candidates’ credentials in order to issue the necessary licenses or to certify their credentials. Those organisations have their own regulations and ways of assessment.




Verify witch organization is the one in charge of recognising you professionally or academically before you start the assessment process.
