Canadian Information Centre for International Credentials
Promoting International Credential Recognition
Information service to support the recognition and portability of Canadian and international educational and occupational qualifications.
The Canadian Information Centre for International Credentials (CICIC) was established after Canada ratified the UNESCO Convention on the Recognition of Studies, Diplomas and Degrees concerning Higher Education in the States belonging to the Europe Region, in 1990, to assist Canada in carrying out its obligations under the terms of this convention. The convention promotes international mobility by advocating wider recognition of higher education and professional qualifications.
