I'm sending all my documents in one package on October 1st. So that means if it reaches IQAS by 5th. So 12 weeks starts from 5th of October?

This sounds good :)
You can then expect to get your report by Dec end or Jan 1st to 2nd week..

Dec end if they want to close all documents before Christmas or else will get further delayed.. Best of Luck

Hi, please help me with the procedure for ECA by IQAS. Wants to send my PGDBM (MBA) FOR evaluation. As I have done before through Wes and they didn't give an equivalence as masters. I have done B. E. (Mechanical). Little confuse about IQAS procedure.
Does your college give you equivalency of Masters to your PGDBM? If yes then IQAS will give you masters equivalent report. Else it will be considered as Diploma.

Check with your examination cell or Registrar / Dy

Hello, my sister-in-law got this message for her EE application.

This refers to your application for permanent residence in Canada in the Federal Skilled Worker class. In order for Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada to process your application, we will need to review and verify your Education Credential Assessment (ECA) evaluation report by using International Qualifications Assessment Service (IQAS)’s online service. To date, we have not been able to verify your report. IQAS has indicated that you did not use the approved CIC-FSWP application process on their website, and therefore they are unable to release any information to our office. In order to allow IRCC to process your application for permanent residence, please contact IQAS as soon as possible to request that your ECA report be made available to us. Please be advised that you may need to order a duplicate report and select CIC as a recipient of your IQAS evaluation report. NOTE: The above information/documents must be received and our office must be able to review the report within 30 days from the date of this correspondence. If this deadline is not met, your application will be assessed based on the information that was provided with your application and your application could be rejected. Thank you for your interest in Canada

Can anyone please decipher this? My understanding is that, if you apply for IQAS this can be used for express entry as well - says on their website:

  • is valid for Express Entry for five years
  • can be used for immigration to any province/territory in Canada
  • does not mean that your credentials are automatically recognized for licensure in Canada
  • does not guarantee a job or successful immigration application; but, if you are successful with your immigration application, this assessment may also be used when applying for jobs
Would she have to re-apply a new one?
When completing IQAS online application, one should start his application from "ECA for Immigration Purposes" link. That may be what IRCC means by "IQAS has indicated that you did not use the approved CIC-FSWP application process on their website". I suggest you do as IRCC advised and contact IQAS to request that your ECA report be made available to IRCC. I don't see it being a problem, it'll probably be sorted with one phone call.

May I request that you give us feedback of what transpired after you contact IRCC to help others who might encounter same in future.

Hi Alecia, thanks for calling. Do you know when they will start sending the emails?
Why are they taking a long time?

Dear i called IQAS...my ECA has been completed. There was a delay in sending out emails.
I was informed by an agent that "12 WEEKS STARTS THE DATE THE LAST ACADEMIC DOCUMENT ARRIVES AT THE OFFICE".

Thank you for your reply Jay, we've already called IQAS and they said the only way is to re-apply for a new ECA. We requested a basic assessment which is a BIG mistake on our part. The only thing that we're thinking is, if CIC can maybe give more than 30 days as we're planning on applying with WES instead.

Hi libra17,

Can you confirm when the last of your documents were delivered to IQAS? I believe it was sometime in late June.

If you explain this to CIC they should grant you an extension, all the best.
