Educational Credential Assessments
You need an Educational Credential Assessment if you:
To immigrate to Canada, you and any family members 18 and older must include your police certificates as part of the application for permanent residence. You need one for every country, other than Canada, where you stayed for more than 6 months in a row.
If you need one from the country where you currently live, it must have been issued within the last 6 months.
If you need one from a country where you lived in the past, it must have been issued after you last lived in that country. If it has an expiry date and is now expired, include it. We will let you know if you need a new one.
If you have a criminal record, you may not be allowed to enter or stay in Canada. People who pose a risk to Canada’s security are also not allowed to come to Canada.
Police certificates must be scanned copies of the original certificate(s) in colour. Certified true copies or unauthorized copies will not be accepted and will result in your application being rejected.

Option 1: Decline your invitation to apply
Your profile will go back in the pool. Depending on your score, you may be invited to apply again.
Option 2: Prove that you applied for the police certificate
In very rare cases, we may accept a letter of explanation and proof that shows you made your best effort to get a police certificate on time.
You can upload this in the “Police Certificate” section of your document checklist. Examples of proof include the following:
