The Comparative Evaluation for Studies Done Outside Quebec or Évaluation comparative des études effectuées hors du Québec is the document which compares between education received abroad or any other Canadian province and education received in Quebec. In other words, this document describes the educational benchmarks of the qualifications earned in Quebec and those earned outside the province.
Who needs an evaluation of their studies?
Under following circumstances, you may need the Évaluation comparative des études effectuées hors du Québec:

- For construction trades in Quebec, a foreign worker may require an evaluation comparative.
- A evaluation comparative may be required in applying to a professional order in Quebec.

The Comparative Evaluation for Studies Done Outside Quebec is basically required in order to file an application with the Ministère de l’Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport for the purpose of obtaining a permit to practice teaching in the province of Quebec. This is needed when a foreign national intends to teach in institutions offering programs in preschool, primary, general secondary education, vocational education and adult education.
An evaluation comparative is also required when a foreign national applies for a job in the municipal, provincial or federal government. It is also required to apply for financial assistance from La Financière agricole du Québec.
