Data Access

EQAO makes available the following data definitions for each type of data file for public use:

Accessing the EQAO Data Portal

Requestors can access these EQAO data files through the EQAO Data Portal. Access is limited to files containing information from which names, Ontario Education Numbers and other personal identifiers have been removed.

Please download and complete the appropriate Application Form below for access to the EQAO Data Portal. Once the application is approved by EQAO, you will receive an e-mail with instructions to access the posted data files.

Freedom of Information (FOI) request

Requestors requiring data not contained in the files provided through the EQAO Data Portal may wish to request these data through EQAO’s Freedom of Information (FOI) request process. Please note that there is a charge for this service. Once your FOI data request has been received and analyzed and it has been established by an EQAO director that the data requested is not infringing student, teacher or principal privacy or confidentiality, you will receive a cost estimate from EQAO. The data files will be processed and provided as soon as possible.
