Academic credentials recognized in Canada for international students, new immigrants and skilled workers

July 25, 2018 - On August 1, 2018 the Lisbon Recognition Convention comes into force. This Convention will allow international students, new immigrants and skilled workers who have studied in countries belonging to UNESCO’s Europe region to have their academic credentials more easily recognized in Canada. The Lisbon Recognition Convention will encourage the academic mobility of students and skilled professionals by providing information on how to obtain an assessment to work or study in Canada. It will specify the key principles and mechanisms for the recognition of higher education qualifications.
