The processing time for an assessment is estimated to be 6-8 weeks after all required documents are received in our office. This is an approximate processing time and is not a guarantee. Processing time will be updated weekly.
Upgrades for those individuals who have already recieved an ICAS Assessment Report will be handled in 5-7 business days (provided that documentation is complete).
The Federal Skilled Worker Assessment Package includes the following:
The Assessment Reports you receive will describe all appropriate credentials submitted and, for each, indicate the comparable level of education in Canada. You will also receive an unofficial electronic copy of the assessment for your records.
Citizenship and Immigration Canada requires the ability to verify the authenticity of the original Assessment Report you submit to CIC with your FSW application. To facilitate this, CIC will have secure access for a period of ten years, to an electronic copy of your report and other required information.
Delivery of the Report by Courier
The FSW Assessment Package includes two original Assessment Reports. Additional reports may be requested at the time of application or at a later date.
