Dates, Deadlines & Location

This page contains all dates and deadlines for the spring and fall exam administrations. 

OEBC will use its best efforts to ensure that its examinations are administered at the scheduled time and location and that exam results are issued by the estimated reporting date. OEBC reserves the right to change administration dates and location and results reporting date and is not responsible for any cancellation or interruption of an examination or results reporting due to circumstances beyond its control.   

Reminder:  Candidates must submit applications by the deadlines noted. A deadline will not be extended to accommodate late applications. Note: An eligibility request must be submitted for each exam by the eligibility request deadline.




 We are aware of the concerns regarding the postponed spring exam. Please know we are considering options for candidates while ensure that we meet the regulators’ requirement for a reliable and defensible examination.

We are actively monitoring the situation and will update you as we learn more.

At this time, it is unclear what directions/limitations maybe imposed by the Government of Ontario, so we cannot provide a revised date for the exams at this time. Rest assured that we will provide as much notice as possible for the new exam date so you can make arrangements to attend.

Please be advised exam registration dates for fall 2020 remain the same.

Your patience is greatly appreciated.
