If you are an architect in India looking to obtain a Permanent Residency (PR) in Canada, then it is important news for you. You should read this article carefully before applying for a Canada PR visa.


On 22 May 2024, A new professional organization was approved by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to provide educational credential assessments (ECAs) to architects who wish to immigrate to Canada.

The need for ECA for Canada PR
Applications for programs leading to economic permanent residence in Canada must show that their acquired international degrees, diplomas, or certificates are genuine and equal to credentials from Canada to meet eligibility requirements. To accomplish this, applicants must get an ECA from a professional body or multi-purpose ECA organization that has been designated by the IRCC.

What is the role of the Canadian Architectural Certification Board (CACB)?

The Minister has assigned the Canadian Architectural Certification Board (CACB) the authority to grant ECAs as of May 20, 2024, to applicants who have indicated that their major or intended occupation is the National Occupational Classification (NOC) of "Architect" (NOC 21200). The CACB's ECAs will establish how international degrees relate to Canadian qualifications required for architectural practice. ECAs are acknowledged as a stage in the architect licensing procedure.

 

Will ECAs issued by organizations other than the CACB still be accepted for architects (NOC 21200)?

IRCC will continue to accept your ECA if it is still valid if your principal occupation is "Architect" (NOC 21200) and it was issued by another recognized organization before October 31, 2024.

 

What is the current processing time of the Canadian Architectural Certification Board (CACB)for ECA.

The current processing time of the Canadian Architectural Certification Board (CACB)for ECA is 2 weeks. However, the processing time may change from time to time and applicant’s circumstances. So it is advisable to applicant check the processing time before applying for ECA.
