On July 27, 2022, the Government of Canada announced that it will switch to the 2021 version of the National Occupational Classification (NOC) on November 16, 2022. The Government will replace the current NOC 2016 skill type and skill level structure with a 6-category system representing the training, education, experience and responsibilities (TEER) required to work in an occupation. 4-digit occupation codes will also be replaced with 5-digit codes. Most jobs will stay in the same TEER category, while some jobs may change to a different TEER category. According to the update, skill level B jobs may become TEER 2 or TEER 3 jobs. With regard to Express Entry, this change means that occupations eligible under Express Entry will be included in TEERs 0 to 3. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is now the update to the system to reflect the changes.
