NACOR Exam Postponement

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all national examinations scheduled in May and June of 2020 have been POSTPONED.  Once the current government restrictions are lifted and NACOR is able to administer the national examinations again they will work with the provincial regulatory boards and schools to set new examination dates for the Fall 2020.

NACOR is asking all students that were planning to sit the examinations in the spring to submit your examination applications to their office now.  Applications are available on the NACOR website. 

You do not have to have completed your program to submit your application to NACOR, applications can be submitted while you are still in the program.  Submitting your application now will allow NACOR to contact you directly as soon as a new date is set for your examination.

NACOR will not process your examination application fees until after a new date for your examination has been scheduled and you have been notified of the new date.  They will contact you directly through the email you provide them with on your application form as soon as a new date is set.  They will also post the new dates on their website.

If the new date for your examination does not work for you, you will have the option to either withdraw from the examination or reschedule your application to another available date without any penalties.

For further information please reach out to NACOR at or by phone (204) 949-1950  Toll Free: 1-866-949-1950
