3. What are the dates for scoring?

Invitations to participate in EQAO activities will be e-mailed to eligible candidates approximately 4–6 weeks prior to the activity. Eligible candidates will be able to view scoring opportunity details and dates on their EQAO profile dashboard.

4. What are the typical working hours for scoring and committee events?

New operating hours at the scoring site have been established, specifically earlier start and finish times, and changes to lunch and break times. This should help address some traffic issues and reduce wait times for services.

  • Monday to Saturday 8:00 a.m. to 3:55 p.m. and
  • Sundays (if applicable) 9:00 a.m. to 3:55 p.m. (later start to accommodate transit schedules)

We have done our best to provide you with an accurate estimate of the amount of time required to score each task. For your personal planning, we have also provided you with an estimate of the latest end date to complete each task. Scoring may, however, be completed sooner than the date indicated.

EQAO requirements: Committee Events are scheduled from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

5. What is the pay date?

Each scoring activity has a distinct pay date that is approximately 30 days after the end of the entire event. EQAO provides specific pay dates for large scoring events in the Scoring Site Information document provided at the scoring site.
