Obtaining a comparative evaluation


The Ministère de l'Immigration, de la Diversité et de l'Inclusion has adopted specific rules regarding document requirements. Considering that the diplomas issued by Canadian provinces and territories are comparable to corresponding Québec diplomas, the Ministère stopped evaluating these documents as of July 1, 2015.


The Évaluation comparative des études effectuées hors du Québec (comparative evaluation for studies done outside Québec) is an expert opinion issued by the Ministère de l'Immigration, de la Diversité et de l'Inclusion for reference purposes only. It is neither a diploma nor an equivalency diploma.

The comparative evaluation establishes an overall comparison between two official education systems. It indicates the educational benchmarks (or main diplomas) and areas of training in Québec that can be used to compare studies done outside Québec.


The comparative evaluation tables were removed from Appendix 3 of the Guide des procédures d'immigration since they contained obsolete information. The Ministère is currently developing a new tool. In the meantime, you can still consult the website of the Canadian Information Centre for International Credentials, in the section Country Education Profiles.
