Canada Immigration Express Entry | CRS Point | New TEER NOC Code System | Immigrate to Canada

On July 27th IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada) announced a major change for the National Occupation Classification NOC. IRCC was continuously working to implement this change for Canadian Immigration System.

Finally, today on Nov 16th, 2022, IRCC is switching the whole immigration system from NOC 2016 to NOC 2021, which is a TEER Training, Education, Experience and Responsibilities system.

This change will definitely effect all of the Canada’s immigration pathways, streams and of course the Express Entry System. It will cause change in eligibility criteria also for most of the NOC Codes.

For example, under NOC 2016, Express Entry requires work experience of the applicant as mentioned under that National occupation Classification category. But now, under this new TEER system, Express Entry requires not only that specific Work experience but also Education, Training and Responsibilities for that specific occupation.

NOC Code 2016 is now a TEER Based System, as shown below
