In situations where the assessment outcome is not favourable to the applicant, provide information on the appeal process and other remedial measures to assist with recognition.
For the applicant:
- Provide additional information on the appeal process, such as:
- a step-by-step description of the appeal process;
- basic information on the appeal application form;
- critical steps/milestones, from start to finish;
- point of contact, for further questions;
- processing timelines;
- fees (with a breakdown of what they cover).
- a request for new evidence from the applicant.
- Assist in identifying remedial measures in order to obtain recognition at a later stage, such as:
- information on educational institutions offering similar academic programs;
- bridging academic programs to make up for the substantial differences identified;
- alternative forms of study;
- undertaking a prior learning assessment and recognition (PLAR) process through:
- an educational institution;
- a professional regulatory authority.
- financial-assistance opportunities (e.g. , the Government of Canada's foreign credential recognition micro loan program).
