Educational Credential Assessment (ECA)

The ECA assessment is used to verify that your foreign degree, diploma, or certificate is legitimate and equal to the Canadian standard. It is required for Canadian Immigration under most federal economic classes.

Elboniel Consultants can assist with the registration and processing of credential evaluation with the following IRCC designated agencies:

Nurses can obtain an ECA for their immigration purposes from the IRCC designated agencies. However, for a nurse to practise in Canada, they must go through the National Nursing Assessment Service (NNAS) to assess their academic qualifications.  The organization verifies and compares internationally educated nurses’ credentials with what is obtainable in the Canadian education system. The service is available to Registered Nurses (RNs), Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs), and Registered Psychiatric Nurses (RPNs). In addition, the organization forwards completed reports to the nursing regulatory bodies showing the applicant’s employment, proof of license/registration, and validity of applicant’s credentials.

Language Proficiency Testing

Language ability is often a limiting factor for studying in Canada or qualifying to many skilled immigrant programs. However, under the regular study permit application stream, a prospective student is not required to show proficiency through language test results. On the contrary, a student applying to obtain an expedited study permit through the Student Direct Stream (SDS) program must submit a valid language test result.

Elboniel Consultants provide preparation for language proficiency, knowing that applicants must provide proof of language ability in one of Canada’s two official languages when they apply to immigrate or study.
