Assessment & Translation of International Credentials
Assessment services help people who have been educated outside of Canada. The assessment of international education is called ‘credential assessment.’ A credential assessment shows how your education compares with Canadian educational standards.
Credential assessments are essential for people who are applying for school programs or looking for jobs that require post-secondary education. The Ontario government funds World Education Services (WES) to provide these services.
Some professions and trades in Ontario require a specialized assessment process. For information, visit: Ontario Immigration. The site features information on regulatory bodies and getting licensed.
While receiving Ontario Works, you may be able to receive help paying the application costs for a credential assessment. For more information, talk to your caseworker or go to an Employment and Social Services location
