STEP 4. Credential Assessment

Following your application review, if it appears that you may qualify for ECE classification, the Early Learning and Child Care Program will refer you to a credential assessment service. The International Qualifications Assessment Service (IQAS) is preferred. If you already have a credential assessment from another Canadian agency, the Early Learning and Child Care Program will ask you to submit this.
