Comparative Education Service (CES)

Academic Credential Assessment

Have your academic credentials assessed by Canada's #1 University

Potential Postal Service Delay (only applicable to regular domestic and international mail)

Canada Post and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) are currently undergoing service disruptions as the Union of Postal Workers voted in favour of strike action after a collective agreement with Canada Post was not reached. While CUPW is still in contract negotiations with Canada Post, CUPW has started rotating service disruptions that have affected operations in certain areas, including the City of Toronto. Mail will continue to be delivered but there may be delays, depending on strike actions.

Courier service is not affected.

We are monitoring the situation closely at this time.

Holiday Closure Notice


As part of the University of Toronto, the Comparative Education Service (CES) will be closed for the holiday season from Saturday, December 22, 2018 to Sunday, January 6, 2019 (inclusive).  This closure period is not included in the estimated processing time published on our processing times page. The ECA online application is still open during the closure period, but the submitted applications will only be reviewed in the order they are received, starting from January 7, 2019.
