Exam Challenges

This Examination Challenge Program is approved by RECO and administered by OREA Real Estate College (the "College"). The Interprovincial Challenge Examination tests skills and competencies relating to province-specific content. Challenge examinations may be offered to:

  • Existing Salespeople and Brokers from other Canadian jurisdictions
  • Previously registered Salespeople and Brokers in the Province of Ontario
  • Previously registered Salespeople and Brokers from other Canadian jurisdictions
  • People seeking registration in Ontario who have recently completed the required educational programming to trade in real estate in another Canadian jurisdiction, but never registered as a Salesperson or Broker in that jurisdiction

The examination challenge approach provides a consistent method to assess knowledge, while ensuring that individuals demonstrate required skills and competencies using a structured evaluation format.

Successful completion of the Interprovincial Challenge Examination only fulfils the education requirement required to apply for registration under REBBA 2002; you must still meet all other registration requirements before your registration will be approved. Those coming from other Canadian jurisdictions must apply to RECO for registration within specific timelines. Ensure you consult with the RECO website, www.reco.on.ca, for full details on these timing elements and all registration requirements, prior to contacting the College to book your Interprovincial Challenge Examination.

The Interprovincial Challenge Examination assesses skills/competencies in regard to province-specific materials. Currently, this examination measures knowledge of relevant sections in Real Estate as a Professional Career, Land, Structures and Real Estate Trading, The Real Estate Transaction - General, The Residential Real Estate Transaction, The Commercial Real Estate Transaction, and Real Property Law. Policies and course summaries are provided to assist individuals in reviewing materials and identifying key province-specific topic matter for the challenge.

The Interprovincial Challenge Examination assumes that common topics (as recognized by Canadian regulators) and associated skills/competencies are adequately addressed through licensing/registration courses in the originating Canadian jurisdiction. The Interprovincial Challenge Examination is centred on skills/competencies for uncommon, province-specific subject matter, most notably Ontario legislation impacting the trading of real estate and unique regulatory considerations affecting registrants.

Note: All references in this text to interprovincial, provincial, and province-specific are deemed to include territories.

Course Materials

To assist in preparing for the exam, a PDF of the required course materials will be accessible in My Portfolio after the challenge exam has been scheduled. A $50 fee will be charged to schedule a challenge examination.
