All OREA College Related COVID-19 Updates

It’s been over 100 days since OREA has held an exam due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in Ontario. The pandemic has caused significant disruption to all aspects of our personal and professional lives. OREA and the Real Estate Council of Ontario (RECO) realize this has impacted students’ ability to finish their programs. Since the shutdown, we have been working closely with RECO to find ways for students to complete their programs to begin their real estate careers.

In response to these extraordinary times, the OREA Real Estate College will continue to operate until March 31, 2021. The last scheduled exam date will be March 13, 2021 (extended from the previously announced date of November 28, 2020). This means that examinations for all courses must be completed by this date.

We are also extending the deadline for admission to The Broker Registration Education Program until November 15, 2020.

With the launch of online-proctored exams last week, available timeslots are being booked quickly. We are working with our online exam provider to add more exam spots, to keep up with demand.

To supplement the online exam delivery, we also intend to resume in-person exams when government and health authorities permit, and when we can be assured of a safe environment for our students and staff.

Our commitment has been unwavering to doing what we can to allow students to complete their educational requirements to pursue their dreams of success as a REALTOR® or Broker.

It has been an unpredictable and challenging time for students. We thank you for your ongoing patience as we navigate how to proceed amidst the challenges in our current environment.
