IRCC introduced a new credential assessment organization for architects

On May 22, 2024, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) announced the designation of a new educational credential assessment (ECA) organization for architects planning to immigrate to Canada. The Canadian Architectural Certification Board (CACB) will issue ECAs to applicants identifying as architects (NOC 21200), underlining the commitment to validate foreign degrees, diplomas, or certificates as equivalent to Canadian credentials, a crucial eligibility criterion for economic permanent residence programs. The CACB-issued ECAs will not only determine the comparability of foreign qualifications with Canadian architectural credentials but will also be recognized as part of the licensing process.
