Program Overview

The new Hybrid program refers to the blend of online and in-class courses. Several of the courses will be offered online however the exams will be in person in-class on campus. See section “Courses & Schedule ” to see more.

The Real Estate Brokerage Act (Bill 73) was sanctioned on May 28, 2008 and came into force on May 1, 2010.  The Real Estate industry in the province of Québec went through a major change in terms of the laws that regulate the activities surrounding a real estate transaction. Under the new Real Estate Brokerage Act, Real Estate Agents will become Residential Real Estate Brokers and Real Estate Brokers will become Agencies. The regulatory body that oversees the Real Estate industry, the OACIQ (“Organisme d’autoréglementation du Courtage Immobilier du Québec”), has established seven (7) competencies which the new Residential Real Estate Broker should have developed and mastered in order to act ethically and responsibly in their real estate brokerage practice.

    1. Acting ethically and responsibly in one’s brokerage practice
    2. Managing one’s professional activities in the field of real estate
    3. Making use of general and special rules of law in brokerage transactions
    4. Assessing the quality and the various building elements of an immovable
    5. Estimating the market value of a residential immovable
    6. Carrying out brokerage transactions pertaining to the sale, purchase, leasing or exchange of a residential immovable
    7. Distinguishing the basic principles of mortgage financing

The program is a result of the work of a consortium of 22 colleges in the province who have in the past offered the Real Estate Agent and/or Broker programs and has been designed to allow the attainment of these competencies.


Upon successful completion of this AEC “attestation d’études collégiales” program the student will be required to demonstrate that they have the seven (7) competencies required by the OACIQ (“Organisme d’autoréglementation du Courtage Immobilier du Québec”) in order to obtain a license to practice.  The examination has been designed based on this competency framework. 

The OACIQ exam may be written in English or French.  Those who choose to write the exam in English will be required to prove, before they are issued their license, French language competency as per the regulations.  You may consult the brochure of the “L’Office québécois de la langue française: Le français, un tremplin pour exercer une profession au Québec.”
