On November 16, 2022, Canada will switch from the NOC System to the TEER System.

Yes, you read that right. On November 16, 2022, Canada will switch from the NOC system to the TEER system. What does this mean for you?

The IRCC is preparing to implement the 2021 National Occupational Classification (NOC). This means that the current NOC 2016 skill type and skill level structures (NOC 0, A, B, C, and D) will be replaced by a 6-digit Category system indicating the training, education, experience, and responsibilities (TEER) necessary to work in a profession.

4-digit occupation codes have been replaced with 5-digit codes.

They want to change the eligibility standards for all programs that use the NOC skill type or level. The TEER category is distinct

Skill type O – TEER 0

Skill type A – TEER 1

Skill type B – TEER 2 and TEER 3

Skill level C – TEER 4

Skill level D – TEER 5

In programs that previously used the NOC skill type or levels, categories will be used.
