Educational Credential Assessment

The Language Assessment, Referral, and Counselling Centre (LARCC) assists newcomers seeking to evaluate their international educational credentials for the purpose of employment, education, or licensure. In 2021, LARCC became a designated referral partner for the World Education Services (WES) Gateway Program. 

About WES and the Gateway Program 

WES assesses international educational credentials and provides their Canadian equivalent in an official report. This report can be used for a variety of educational and professional purposes.  

LARCC’s new partnership with the WES Gateway Program allows us to assist newcomers, including refugees and other displaced individuals, who may be missing some of the official documents that are typically required to complete an educational assessment. This means that we can help you through the assessment process even if you don’t have full proof of your academic achievements.  


  • The WES Gateway Program is currently open to individuals educated in Afghanistan, Eritrea, Iraq, Syria, Turkey, Ukraine, and Venezuela.  
  • You must have at least one piece of credible evidence of your studies, this can include a photograph or photocopy of your educational documents.  

We are happy to advise individuals from any country about their options for educational credential assessment.
