5. The stenography examination is held once a year, at the beginning of the year, concurrently in Montréal, Québec and any other region determined by the committee. The committee also sets the date and time for each examination.
If the number of candidates admitted during a given period is insufficient to warrant holding an examination in more than one region, the committee may decide to hold the examination in only one region.
A notice of the dates, places and times is given to the candidates in the Journal du Barreau and on the premises of the École de sténographie judiciaire du Québec. The committee also sets the date and place for the supplemental examination.
