Yes, as of 2023, both terms refer to the very same exam. In the past, the format of the ethics and law exam for PEO was unique to it and PEO named it the PPE. However, PEO recently adopted the NPPE exam and calls it NPPE, but one can find places in their online information where PEO still refers to it as the PPE exam: a reminiscence of their old exam. Nevertheless, other associations across Canada would also use the term NPPE or PPE, interchangeably, for this exam, though they never had a different format, i.e., EGM. Most other associations seem to prefer just the term NPPE or NPPE exam. Universities across the country tend to refer to it just as the PPE or Professional Practice Exam.
