The average processing time for the Canadian Immigration Assessment Package is approximately 30 weeks from the date on which all required documentation is received in our office. This is an approximate processing time and is not a guarantee. ICAS does not offer rush services. This information will be updated as necessary based on application volumes and COVID-19 developments.
Processing time begins when all required documentation has been received in our office. These are an estimate only and rush services are not available.
The following are the current average processing times for each type of ICAS Assessment Report:
General Assessment Report (10-12 weeks)
Secondary School Comprehensive Assessment Report (10-12 weeks)
Postsecondary Comprehensive Assessment Report and Secondary and Postsecondary Comprehensive Assessment Report (25 weeks).
Please note that these estimates do not apply to assessments for immigration to Canada.
If you are applying for immigration to Canada, ICAS has a separate application process for immigration applicants who require an ECA.
ICAS' office will be closed for the Christmas holidays from December 24, 2021 to January 2, 2022 (inclusive). Any e-mail enquiries received during that time will be answered in the new year.
Season’s greetings from ICAS.
