The current processing time for an assessment is approximately 10 weeks from the date on which all required documents are received in our office. This processing time applies to all files for which complete documentation was received on, or after, June 1, 2014. This is an approximate processing time and is not a guarantee. Processing times are updated weekly. For all new applications, submitted on September 9 or later, the estimated processing time is approximately 15 weeks.
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.
