You must include your ECA report and the reference number in your Express Entry profile. If you completed your education outside Canada, you need an assessment to: be eligible as the principal applicant for Federal Skilled Workers Program (Express Entry), or
earn points for education you got outside Canada. You can also earn points for your spouse or common-law partner’s education, if they are coming with you to Canada. You don’t need an assessment for a Canadian degree, diploma or certificate. To earn points, your report must show that your completed foreign credential (degree, diploma or certificate) is equal to a completed Canadian secondary school (high school) or post-secondary credential.
