Do I need an Educational Credential Assessment to apply under Express Entry?
Not necessarily. But, to get points for your education under the Comprehensive Ranking System, you must either:
- have been educated in Canada, or
- have a valid Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) for your completed foreign education.
You may also need an ECA to meet the requirements of one of the programs included in Express Entry. For example, the Federal Skilled Worker Program requires you to have an ECA.
