Extraordinary session December 9

Due to the power outage that occurred in downtown Montreal on September 23 during the professional examination, and the resulting inconveniences, the OIIQ has decided to hold an extraordinary makeup session on Monday, December 9, 2019, in Montreal only.

To be fair to everyone, we are offering all candidates who failed the exam, whether or not they were inconvenienced, as well as candidates who were absent or not registered for the September 23 session, the opportunity to take the extraordinary exam in December rather than waiting for the spring 2020 session.

If you decide to take the extraordinary exam on December 9, you must register between October 17 and November 1, 2019, at 4:30 p.m.

Specific measures apply to your situation depending on where you took the exam in September. Please select the site where you attended the exam.

All of those who were invited to take the exam in September 2019 but didn’t register or were absent to this session must refer to the specific measures related to the Centre des congrès de Québec below.

Registration for the December 9 exam

 

Important

  1. Your registration must be valid and complete before you register for the professional examination. If you have been the subject of a decision of a Canadian court convicting you of a criminal offence or if the disciplinary council of a professional order in Quebec or a professional body outside of Quebec has rendered a decision leading to the revocation of your permit, your striking off the Roll, or the restriction or suspension of your professional activities, you must report this in section 3 of the examination registration form.

For information on your registration: see etudiants-br@oiiq.org
 

When do you have to register for the examination?

Important note: These rules apply ONLY to the extraordinary examination to be held on December 9, 2019.

 

Once you complete your training program:

  • your educational institution will notify the OIIQ that you have successfully completed the program;
  • the Order will then email you the information you need to register for the examination.
  • you must register for the professional examination each time you are notified. You have up to two years and three tries to pass it.

If you feel that your specific circumstances are justification for not registering for the examination (e.g., if you obtained your diploma outside Quebec and were granted equivalence less than 90 days before the date of the professional examination), see the not registered, absence or failure page.

 

2020 examination dates

The examination is held twice a year, in March and September.

  • Monday, March 30
  • Monday, September 21

The professional examination will be held in Montreal and Quebec City. You can sit the examination in English or French, and both sites will be equipped to handle students who require accommodation measures. You must request such measures when you register for the examination.

When you register, you must indicate where you wish to sit the examination, i.e. in Montreal or Quebec City. The final choice of where you will sit the examination is up to the OIIQ, however, depending on the number of places available.

 

Confirmation of your registration

About two weeks before the professional examination, a confirmation of registration indicating the site, date, examination schedule and examination procedures will be sent to the “My Account” section.
