If you are seeking employment, professional licensing or further study in Canada, let ICES help you achieve your goals. ICES evaluates formal for-credit educational programs of study for people who have studied in other countries and then determines comparable levels in British Columbian and Canadian terms. The results of an ICES assessment are provided in evaluation reports that are objective, consistent, and reliable.

If you are seeking an evaluation for immigration purposes, you will need a different type of report called the Educational Credential Assessment.

ICES does not evaluate:

  • Trade qualifications
  • Military training
  • Second language training
  • Professional licenses or titles such as a Chartered Accountant
  • Exam based qualifications
  • Apprenticeships
  • Work or life experience
  • Continuing education courses taken at non-recognized institutions
  • Non-credit professional development courses
