Mandatory basic training: Important information for candidates wishing to become real estate or mortgage brokers
(Updated on September 6, 2013)
In an effort to enhance brokers’ skills and address the concerns of real estate professionals, any candidate wishing to take the OACIQ certification exam since September 1, 2013 must have previously taken and passed a basic training program recognized by the OACIQ.
The OACIQ provides the public and licence holders with the name of various educational institutions offering training programs in real estate brokerage.

Are you an agency executive officer or a real estate or mortgage broker in another province and now wish to practice in Québec? Here is how:
The co-ownership was the highlight of the last seminar of the OACIQ, on November 7, 2012, in Boucherville and November 13, 2012, in Quebec. More than 500 brokers attended the event.

In order to properly carry out the mission and responsibilities assigned to them by their incorporating acts, some public bodies have special powers allowing them to require the disclosure of personal information through what is commonly called a “formal demand”. The person whose personal information is subject to such a demand may also be a client, a broker acting for an agency, or an employee of a broker or agency.
As provided for in the Real Estate Brokerage Act, the OACIQ Board consists of eleven (11) Directors, eight (8) of whom are elected among licence holders and the other three (3), who are neither broker, manager nor executive officer of an agency, are appointed by the Minister of Finance.
