New report released on academic credential assessment in Canada

October 29, 2020
CICIC has released a new report focused on Canada’s implementation of the 1997 Lisbon Recognition Convention (LRC) – an agreement on credential evaluation ratified by member states in Europe and non-member states such as Australia, Canada, Israel, etc. The report has found that, as a whole, Canada is compliant with the LRC “to a leading extent” among signatories. However, the researchers also identified room for significant improvements in areas such as an overarching pan-Canadian qualifications framework, a Canadian digital diploma supplement, and the speed of adoption of learning outcomes and recognition of prior learning.
