April 6, 2020
The OACIQ continues to increase its efforts to limit the impact of the pandemic as much as possible and to keep you informed.
Q. When will the certification exam sessions resume?
A. We are collaborating in the implementation of preventive measures, as issued by Quebec's Public Health Department. For now, our exam sessions are suspended until May 4, 2020. Note that the calendar on our website provides up-to-date information.
Q. My exam has been cancelled, when will it be rescheduled?
A. For the moment, the dates for retaking the exams have not yet been scheduled. We are closely monitoring the development of COVID-19 and rest assured that we will communicate with candidates already registered as soon as we can, in accordance with the measures issued by Public Health. Candidates already registered for the exams will be given priority when resuming exam sessions which will be at no additional cost to them.
Please keep an eye on your email box and our website for the postponement of exam sessions.
Q. I am a mortgage brokerage candidate. What will happen to the transfer of the mortgage brokerage supervision to the AMF?
A. The transfer of the mortgage brokerage supervision to the Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF) is scheduled for May 1, 2020. For this purpose, we are working to set up a procedure to facilitate the transfer of the files of candidates registered for the mortgage brokerage exam who could not take their exam due to the current situation. More information will be transmitted to you based on the latest developments.
In this rapidly changing landscape, the OACIQ undertakes to maintain regular communications with you. Stay tuned!
