No! They go hand in hand

Unless of course u forge ECA details and hopefully u get ECA before u qualify for the next round of ITA, but why rush?

For those who will be applying shortly, these are some of the reasons they could reject your application
http://www.nairaland.com/2624318/canadian-express-entry-federal-skilled/305#54181386

Dear Friends,

According to forum topic I found that we are discussing and sharing a lot of other stuff with each other. Its not bad but we must also keep focusing on possible reasons of rejection before application as well as during the processing time. I start creating a list of reported reasons of rejections you can add more reasons in it or just send me new reasons in inbox to create a useful database.

1. Job not specified as full time and permanent employment
2. Failure to upload ECA (even though it does not ask for it on the upload page)
3. Passport scan missing or incomplete.
4. Missing Proof of Education.
5. Missing original PCC.
6. Incorrect NOC
7. Duties Mismatch
8. Submitting PCCs with specific addresses mentioned
9. Not providing "certified true" transcripts for Canadian degree/diploma
10. POF less than LICO

Great job everyone. You wont believe that each day I come I see so many pages to catch up with and finally dont reach the end, go to bed and wake up to more pages and the cycle repeats itself. well now I'm done and will try not to fall behind again. I did my masters in Malaysia and just realized that I cant request for a PCC without IRCC requesting for one as the request from IRCC is one of the required documents. this is what I saw on cic for Malaysia PCC. Hope following it to the letter is the best because as much as I understand it, it still sounds/seems weird.

CHOICE OF ECA- WES VS IQAS

An Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) is used to verify that your foreign degree, diploma, certificate (or other proof of your credential) is valid and equal to a Canadian one. CIC gave guidelines on the designated organisations for this in http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/skilled/assessment.asp#designated

Please note that you are only required to evaluate your HIGHEST degree for maximum points. For example, if you have MSc OR pHD, you dont need to assess the previous results. However, you would put the details of all qualifications in your educational history and state that you do not have an ECA for it.

as a specialist physician (NOC 3111) or general practitioner/family physician (NOC 3112), the Medical Council of Canada (MCC) must do an ECA for your primary medical diploma,

as a pharmacist (NOC 3131):
if you need a license to practice (for example, providing patient care in a community pharmacy, hospital pharmacy, long term care facility or other practice settings) the Pharmacy Examining Board of Canada (PEBC) must do your ECA.

For other applicants you can choose from the range of bodies but the most popular ones used for evaluation is WES and IQAS. Please avoid ICAS due to the long processing times.

Update....people recently used ICES on this thread and seem to have gotten thier ECA faster. Please research on the best and most efficient body to use per time.

WES
An Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) for Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) takes about twenty (20) business days after we receive, review, and accept all your required documents and we receive payment in full. Please refer to==> https://www.wes.org/ca/

We recommend WES for evaluation of ACCA membership certificate (Its is assessed as 4 year Bachelors degree), ND+HND (It is assessed as three year diploma + One year post graduate certificate), foreign degrees (This is because it usually do not go through a verification process compared to our Nigerian degrees), Nigerian schools that have the reputation of responding quickly to WES via email or even courier. So far WES has maintained it's 20 business days compared to IQAS which seems unpredictable.

If you are assessing your ACCA, you should add your other bachelor's degree( if your have one) to claim two or more certificates. If you have HND + ACCA, assessing ND+HND is sufficient to give you the highest points for two or more certificates.

For Nigerian degrees, diploma and certificates, After WES receives your transcript (sent directly from your school) and a copy of your certificate (statement of result is sometimes acceptable), they send a verification email and physical mail to your school to confirm the authenticity of your result. Now this can cause delay if your school is on strike, has slow administrative processes or even claim they did not get the email. Your school can respond through email or post through Courier. Please avoid using post office for dispatching your transcript or verification if you want your ECA ASAP. Your 20 business days starts counting from when WES received this verification. An alternative is to use IQAS if you know your school takes forever to respond. Before you make a decision on whether WES or IQAS you can check the thread for people that have used WES and what experience they had with verification. You can track the status of your application easily on your login page with WES but not you have to call and follow up with IQAS

Please note that it is highly uncessary that you include your WAEC in the evaluation process as this does not add further points and only delays the process.

IQAS

This is ordinary not the most preferred option except in some cases where you know your school delays significantly in verfying your result with WES and for a lawyer who wants to claim more points. The body appears to be overwhelmed with applications and has moved it's processing time from 10 business days to 9 weeks over the past few months.

Currently it takes 9 weeks no longer 30 business days ( please always refer to the website for the latest processing time) through this link==> https://www.alberta.ca/iqas-immigration.aspx. The body evaluates Bachelors in Law degree as a professional thus giving you more scores like a master degree. Hence it is strongly recommended for Lawyers who needs the additional point.

IQAS usually would not verify your Nigerian degree once they can ascertain that the transcript originates from your school. This makes the evaluation seem faster compared to if you spend two months trying to make your school respond to WES[b] (I really can't say it's faster anymore due to the frequent change in processing time. [/b])Foreign degrees holders need not use IQAS cos you will do it at a lesser time with WES.

Please note that WES is more organised in terms of tracking the status of your application with the online portal. IQAS sends two emails. (When they receive a copy of your credential) and when they have received all documents.

For these two bodies, you would get a soft copy of your ECA report. This is sufficient for the EE process.

Dispatching the hard copy ECA

Upon registration, you would be asked to state if you want it couriered to Nigeria or a Canadian address (cheaper option). If you have a reliable contact in Canada, you can use his or her address as you do not need the hard copy urgently. However, if you do not have one, I would recommend that you choose courier rather than post office as you cant track it when you use the post office.

Interpreting the ECA result

Kindly refer to the attached for the interpretation of ECA result. Please input each credential evaluated separately while completing your EE profile as you would not see a drop down for two or more certificate.

Proof of studies ( when submitting your online application post ITA)
Please upload the following when submitting your proof of education (Scanned colored copy)
Your ECA report (make sure you correctly quote the ECA number in your application)
IELTS Test result form
Certificates of degree or diploma for which you have an ECA for. (Some people have successfully used statement of result with an LOE, please get your certificate if it is readily available)
Transcripts (if available). This is not a compulsory requirement.

Please note that the ECA forms an integral part of your application process and we recommend you start the process of evaluating it as soon as possible while your prepare for IETLS. It is not recommended that you put a details of ECA report still being processed and form the test report date just to get ITA. This may be termed as misrepresentation and may lead to rejection. Get at least a soft copy of your report before your proceed with the EE profile.

ECA for Spouse.


It is not compulsory your spouse does the ECA or IETLS if your have enough points as the PA without his result. Use the CRS tool http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/skilled/crs-tool.asp to confirm if your spouse truly needs and ECA per the score available to you. For example, a Hubby/Wife with Msc/ two of more certificate and about 30 or 31 years may not need his/her spouse to do an ECA if he can conveniently get above 450. Imagine if you have 15 points from having a sibling in Canada or if he can pass the French test giving additional 30 points.

I would recommend that before you jump into the process, sit down, do your permutation and combination and decide who is a better applicant in terms of scores. This process requires carefully planning and not making an uninformed decision.

Not having an ECA for your qualification does not mean you exclude it in your educational history while filling your form, you simply choose the option of you do not have an ECA and thus the scores wont be calculated.

Also, an ECA defers from a Course by Course evaluation which may be required by some professional bodies in Canada when you apply to join them. You will do a fresh request for this and it can be easier if they have your transcript from the ECA.

For more information on the pricing and step by step process of the evaluation process. Please visit the respective body for a detailed guide. Please DO NOT ask questions like how much is WES, IQAS and all when you can get the up to date info on their site. wink

FAX

Although it's not expressly stated on thier site that you can fax a copy of your credentials and documents required by WES or IQAS. People on this thread have successfully used online fax like www.hellofax.com. please include your reference number and details of accompany documents as a cover page. The fax number of the bodies can be seen on thier website.

We hope that this addresses some of your concerns on ECA as we would gladly refer new applicants to this page when they ask the same questions that have been answered here.

Please respond to this post (reduce the texts in the quote) to let me know if there is anything else to add and I would modify accordingly.

All the best to us in this journey.

Cheers

Re: Canadian Express Entry/Federal Skilled Workers Program-Connect Here Part 2 by Bimpsy99: 7:56am On Aug 20
POST AOR PROCESSES

Here is someone's understanding of the steps involved post AOR.

Step 1: Completeness Test as per Regulation 10

Immigration Officer will assure that your file is complete as defined under the Regulation 10 of IRCC Act. If your file includes all details and documents required then it will be sent for Assessment.


Step 2: Assessment for Eligibility and Admissibility

This process sometimes called as A11 (For Eligibility) and A16 (For Admissibility on Medical Ground).

A11 will take some time, however; A16 will be completed within 2-3 days after your file is in Assessment Stage.

A11 (Eligibility Test)

Minimum Entry Requirement (R75)

Verification will be conducted on each of the Six Eligibility Factors (R78-83). This will only focus on assuring that the candidate attained at least 67 out of 100 points and Minimum Score needed at the time ITA was issued. Misrepresentation or Fraud check is carried later on during A40. 

Education (R78)

ECA Report and Educational Documents are verified until the officer is satisfied to pass R78.

Language (R79)

Language Score is recalculated using IELTS Scores and Verification is done online using your Test Report Form Number. Once verified R79 is passed.

Work Experience (R80)

Verify Scores calculated and Work Experience Letters. Calculate Similarity of NOC Scores and verify documents. Officer will usually check email, fax, contact, website (if any), and address is written on Letterheads to verify if company physically exists and registered at the address provided. If Satisfied will pass R80.

Age (R81)

Verify the age against the official Personal Documents. Will pass R81 once satisfied.

Arranged Employment – if applicable (R82)

If applicable, will verify any job offers or call employer in Canada. Will Pass R82 after verifying offer from Employer.

Adaptability – if applicable (R83)

Verify each of the adaptability Factor and Points Claimed. Will Pass R83 after every factor is verified.

In addition, Officer will verify the Settlement Funds (R76) to ensure sufficient Funds are available. Once Satisfied will pass R76.

Although, at this stage, eligibility Test is completed your account may not be updated at this stage. Immigration Officer will approve your file and send it for A40 Test and if passed will approve your file as eligible.


A16 (Admissibility on Medical Ground)

At this stage, you will be requested for Medical Certificate or else your Upfront Medical Report will be obtained from your Panel and conclusion will be made on Health concerns.

Applications may be rejected if Health of a Person can impose a threat to Canadians health or will be expensive to treat under Public Health. This includes any health concerns with Children or anyone accompanying with the principal applicant. Good Panelist will inform you the same day regarding your X-Ray and other tests results except for Blood Test, which they usually inform within 2-3 working days if you have any health problem. Therefore, it is better to wait 2-3 working days after Upfront Medical before you apply with IRCC.

Once verified officer will pass and update your file. A11 and A16 Test are started together, however, A11 will take much more time to verify documents.

Criminal Record Verification

After A16 is passed, your first Background Check will be performed and your file will be updated. The status will change from Not Applicable to either In Progress (also referred as IP1) or Next step is to conduct Background Check (also referred as NBGC or IP1).

In this Stage, your Police certificates will be verified and assured that they meet the criteria’s of IRCC as well. In addition, they will send requests to all countries you have visited and obtain clearance from them. If these countries are quick to respond, then your file will move to Not Applicable again in few weeks’ time. 


Step 3: Assessment for Misrepresentation and Fraud (A40)

This stage will start once both the A11 and A16 including Criminal Verification is completed. In this stage, your file status will change from Not Applicable to In Progress (also referred as IP2) and will be the final stage before PPR. At this stage, you may be required to take Interview or other checks may be performed. Once A40 is passed, you will receive PPR and you will be required to send Passport to your Visa Office for Stamping and receiving CoPR. 


This is the general guide for understanding process only however in reality each candidate and stream may see a different kind of trends.

Hi

They are different but you can ask that your file is transferred to Canada and pay the application fee for WES Canada (Have a reference number). Request that only your MsC is evaluated for this purpose so you save some time.

Cheers

Interpreting the ECA result

Kindly refer to the attached for the interpretation of ECA result. Please note the word 'post graduate', 'graduate certificate'. This means that ND+BSC do not qualify for two or more certificates. as the ND would be assessed as a two year diploma. However dual bachelors degree (four years each) qualifies.



I have some concerns this information is not correct. Have you found anyone that did not earn points for ND+Bsc?
I did my own research and I did find at least two people who earned points for pre-Bsc ND + Bsc.

I think the mistake comes from misinterpreting the information posted on CIC's website regarding interpreting ECAs. In this my post, I posted the details surrounding this http://www.nairaland.com/2624318/canadian-express-entry-federal-skilled/784#59443268

In interpreting the ECA result, the summary given by WES right after "Canadian Equivalency" should give an idea regarding how to interpret your ECA.

NA/IP1- I missed the change so no date.
ADR: August 1 (RPPR Fee)

I stated earlier in part one that I have a cute addition to my family last week Friday, should I just wait for PPR mail since I'm now in Ip2 to notify Cic or i should still go ahead and raise a CSE?
Don't really understand how Ip1 or 2 background check works, so I hope this is Ip2

All about "GIFT DEEDS"

What is a gift deed?
You don't have enough money for Proof of Funds and you would have a relation or friend post a bulk sum into your account to cover your proof of funds. You then do a gift deed to somehow "legalize" this transaction so that it doesn't raise eyebrows. This is so your application stands in good shape.

Firstly, you should do a gift deed only if you feel comfortable doing it. IRCC has not explicity required that applicants do a gift deed. It's not present on their website. However, there is evidence to believe some have done gift deeds and successfully obtained their PR. My guess is that the Visa Officers evaluated each application on their own merit. Therefore, how you package your gift deed in your overall application is more likely to have an effect on how successfully it is evaluated. As far as I can tell, the gift deed idea evolved from the canadavisa site into Nairaland. Nairalanders embraced it and some have used it successfully.

How does a gift deed work?
A friend, family member, etc, sends a bulk amount into your account before you obtain your statement of account. Then you have to draft some sort of "explanation" attributable to this person which effectively assures the VO that the money has been gifted to you for valid reasons.

Can anyone provide you a gift deed or just family members?
http://www.nairaland.com/2624318/canadian-express-entry-federal-skilled/162#48166112

What are some others things I should know about gift deed?
http://www.nairaland.com/2624318/canadian-express-entry-federal-skilled/419#56140015

If you want to do the deed of gift, here are some formats:
http://www.nairaland.com/2624318/canadian-express-entry-federal-skilled/124#46058842
http://www.nairaland.com/2624318/canadian-express-entry-federal-skilled/261#53487248

Finally, it is unlikely you will find any 100% conviction from anyone to use a gift deed. So, don't start asking the question to death. Use it after you have assessed all these collated opinions above and you become convinced yourself.

Are there alternatives? Yes! You can get the money and put it into some fixed deposit investment, then present the FD. Similarly, you can use it for treasury bills or mutual funds, etc. In summary, there are options. The decision lies with you.

Good luck smiley

Just for the records: Bsc+ATS from ICAN is also evaluated as two or more certificates, with ATS evaluated as one-year college diploma. If anyone has ATS from ICAN, please ensure to include it in your WES application in order to get maximum points for your credentials. Can't say for ICAS or IQAS.
