Submitting a request for a comparative evaluation

Do you need a comparative evaluation?

The comparative evaluation is an expert opinion. It differs from a diploma or an equivalency diploma. It is a tool for professional integration to help regulatory bodies and employers with their admission or hiring processes.

The table Objectif poursuivi par la personne immigrante (in French only - PDF, 60 kB) can help you analyze your needs, based on the objectives you are seeking.

 

  IMPORTANT  
  • You do not need a comparative evaluation to submit an immigration application.
  • You can submit a request for a comparative evaluation from abroad.
