In Canada, we use the National Occupational Classification (NOC) system to classify jobs (occupations). Jobs are grouped based on the type of job duties or the work a person does. Due to NOC system is being overhauled, new NOC codes set to be implemented in 2021 and the revised NOC codes for 2021 will be implemented this year on November 2022. New NOC 2022 will most likely affect Express Entry and PNP candidates, particularly those with NOC Skill Level B jobs. This blog will tell you which jobs are eligible and which jobs are no longer eligible for Express Entry 2022
IRCC is updating the NOC code system which is set to be implemented in November 2022. With this new update, there are now 16 new occupations added to the eligible list for Express Entry. This will open doors for many foreign workers interested in immigrating to Canada and some of those who are working entry-level jobs. These occupations include:
On the flip side, there are three occupation categories that will become ineligible with this NOC code update. Those categories include:
The new NOC codes for 2022 include a new classification for each occupation’s TEER category, which refers to the degree of Training, Education, Experience, and Responsibilities (TEER)
The NOC Skill Type identifies the industry the occupation is in. There are ten Skill Types in the NOC matrix:
0 – Management occupations
1 – Business, finance, and administration occupations
2 – Natural and applied sciences and related occupations
3 – Health occupations
4 – Occupations in education, law and social, community and government services
5 – Occupations in art, culture, recreation and sport
6 – Sales and service occupations
7 – Trades, transport and equipment operators and related occupations
8 – Natural resources, agriculture and related production occupations
9 – Occupations in manufacturing and utilities
The first digit of most NOC codes identifies the Skill Type of the occupation.
What are NOC Skill Levels?
The NOC Skill Level identifies the occupations by the amount and type of education and training that is generally required. There are four Skill Levels in the NOC matrix:
A: Occupations that usually require university education
B: Occupations that usually require college education or apprenticeship training
C: Occupations that usually require secondary school and/or occupation-specific training
D: Occupations that usually require on-the-job training
Each of these Skill Levels is usually represented by the second digit in NOC codes:
A – 0 or 1 B – 2 or 3 C – 4 or 5 D – 6 or 7
