Credit Transfer for Studies in Manitoba


For many international students, studies completed in Manitoba are readily recognized by educational institutions in their home countries. In some cases, however, extra steps may be required for verification of courses taken in Manitoba. 

Below are the procedures required by Mexico and Brazil to transfer credits completed at primary or secondary level. Be sure to verify the information below on the Web sites provided as the requirements may change without notice.

If you are aware of procedures required by other countries please inform the International Education Branch by e-mail.

Mexico

  • Ensure that both last names of the student appear on the transcript.
  • Ensure that the transcript is signed by the school principal and affixed with the school/division’s official seal.
  • Make a photocopy of the official transcript and have the photocopy notarized by a Notary Public in Manitoba. Notaries charge from $0 - $30 per document.
  • Take the notarized copy and the original transcript to Manitoba Consumer and Corporate Affairs (1034 - 405 Broadway, Winnipeg) to have the documents “legalized.” The fee for this is $12.
  • Send the whole package to the Consulate General of Mexico in Toronto (4440 - 199 Bay Street, M5L 1E9) for validation. You must include a money order (made out to the Consulate General of Mexico in Toronto) for the validation fee. The fee in 2003/2004 was $45.80, but is subject to change from year to year. Also include in the package a courier waybill with your account number: the Consulate will use this to ship the validated documents directly to Mexico.
  • Periodically check the consulate’s Web site at www.consulmex.com to monitor any amendment to this procedure.

Brazil

  • Ensure that the transcript includes the student’s full name.
  • Ensure that the transcript is signed by the school principal and affixed with the school/division’s official seal.
  • Send a money order for $9 (per transcript) to the Brazilian consulate (1109 - 077 Bloor West, Toronto, ON, M5S 1M2). The money order should be made out to the Consulate General of Brazil in Toronto.
  • Do not include a waybill as the Brazilian consulate will not send the validated transcript directly to the student. Instead, include a stamped, self-addressed envelope so that the consulate can return the validated transcript to your institution.
  • Send the validated transcript to the student.
  • Periodically check the consulate’s Web site at www.consbrastoronto.org to monitor any amendment to these procedures.
