Processing times

Under the Déclaration de services à la clientèle (declaration of client services), the Ministère commits to sending a letter within 15 working days confirming receipt of your application for an Évaluation comparative des études effectuées hors du Québec (comparative evaluation for studies done outside Québec).

For approximate processing times of a complete file, consult the following table. Note that these processing times are given as a guide only and can vary according to the volume of applications and the complexity of analysis.

In mid-January 2017, for a complete file, the average processing time was weeks.

  • It is pointless contacting the Ministère before the end of the period indicated in the table.
  • If you submitted an incomplete file, it will be returned to you.
  • The act of submitting a file does not mean that a comparative evaluation will necessarily be issued.
  • Processing times are updated every two weeks.
  • Complete files are processed according to the date of receipt of the applications, except if they fall under priority processing.
