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, it is not necessary to wait until you have arrived in Québec to submit your request. You can submit it from abroad.



Instructions for submitting the request

Attention: Do not send original copies of educational documents, unless indicated otherwise.

To submit your request for a comparative evaluation, you must follow the instructions below:

  1. Send the Ministère the form Demande d’ Évaluation comparative des études effectuées hors du Québec (Dynamic PDF, 1675 Kb) (Comparative evaluation for studies done outside Quebec) in its original format, duly completed in block letters, signed and dated.
    - You must declare all your educational training on the form, even if you do not want to have everything evaluated.

  2. Attach payment of required fees through one of the accepted payment methods.
    - If you are paying by credit card, please make sure that you have duly completed, signed and enclosed the original payment form along with your request.

  3. Include legible and complete photocopies of your authorized identification documents.
  4. Attach legible and complete certified copies of the original educational documents you want to have evaluated.
    - You must obtain certified true copies of the original confirmed by recognized authorities of the country or territory responsible for the training.
  5. Attach the original translations of all your documents written in a language other than French or English, including seals and references to authorities who have certified copies of a document.
    - You must include translations done by a recognized translator.
  6. Place each translation above the corresponding document translated.
  7. Place each diploma above the related transcript.
  8. If you want to mandate someone to represent you, add a duly completed original power of attorney.



Wait until you have gathered all the required documents in the formats required before submitting your request. If one or several documents are missing or if the documents submitted are not in the format required, we will return your request, this delaying the processing of your file.
