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.

Your patience is greatly appreciated.

The current COVID 19 (novel coronavirus) pandemic is affecting all Canadians.  OEBC is no different.  After thorough discussion of all options, the Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to postpone the spring administration of the OEBC Written and OSCE exams indefinitely.  OEBC understands the significant impact this has on candidates and is dedicated to delivering these exams on an alternate date as soon as possible.  OEBC is committed to take appropriate measures to protect the health of all of its stakeholders including candidates, volunteers and the general public.  As such, it will follow all Public Health Agency of Canada and government recommendations in determining an appropriate alternate date.  Based on current Health Authority information we do not expect that to be before the end of June.  Updates will be published when available.

Candidates are advised to monitor the OEBC website
