Consult precedents and other resources

If available, search your organization's information systems to locate contextual resources. You may also consult other members of the assessment community to obtain further assistance.

For internal procedures:
  • Search for any previous similar applications processed by your organization in the past. It may be exactly the same or share similarities, such as the:
    • issuing educational institution;
    • completed academic program;
    • academic credential obtained after completion.
  • Verify whether any reciprocity agreement exists between your organization and the issuing educational institution. Such an agreement may be in place to facilitate the recognition process.
  • Consult other internal and external resources to support your process. CICIC's tool box can support your research process and provide a space to consult with other members of the pan-Canadian academic credential assessment community.
