News and Information
ICAS has been designated by the Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism to provide educational credential assessments for individuals applying for immigration to Canada as a Federal Skilled Worker (FSW). ICAS has a separate application process for FSW applicants. Please click here to learn more.
Our current processing time for applicants (not including FSW applicants) is approximately 6 weeks. Actual processing time depends on the volume of applications received on a given day and the nature of the qualifications submitted for assessment. Rush services are not available at this time. In most cases, a General Assessment Report is completed and sent more quickly than any other type of Assessment Report.
ICAS offers training and professional development programs.
Training is available on a variety of topics, including:
- general application procedures to assist your clients with obtaining an ICAS Assessment Report
- general evaluation procedures
- country-specific training
- detection of fraudulent documents
Training can be conducted at your office/institution, at ICAS’ office in Guelph or another suitable venue.
Please call us to discuss your unique training needs.
