Submitting a request for a comparative evaluation

Do you really require a comparative evaluation?

Before submitting a request for a comparative evaluation, you should first determine if you really need this opinion.

Since this opinion is neither a diploma nor an equivalency of a diploma and since it does not constitute an obligation towards an employer, professional order or any other regulatory body, you may not need to obtain a comparative evaluation.

The table Objectif poursuivi par la personne immigrante (immigrant’s objective) can help you analyze whether or not you need to submit a request for a comparative evaluation based on your objectives.



  • If it is clear that you require a comparative evaluation, submit your request as soon as possible in order to avoid any  processing delay.
  • If abroad, you must obtain, in situ, all of the documents to be included with your request.
  • It is not necessary to wait until you have arrived in Québec to submit your request. You can submit it from abroad.



Documents required

Attention: Do not send original copies of documents, unless indicated otherwise, since the documents submitted will not be returned.

In order for the Ministère de l'Immigration, de la Diversité et de l'Inclusion to process your request, you must include the following documents, in the required formats:



Wait until you have gathered all the required documents before submitting your request. If one or several documents are missing, we will return your request thus delaying the processing of your file.



Where to submit your request

You must send your request for a comparative evaluation to the Direction de l'enregistrement et de l'évaluation comparative.
