In 2022, the NOC will undergo significant modifications in Canada - Aptechvisa

by Aditya kumar Canada Immigration,Canada PR Visa

The adjustments will be implemented by IRCC and ESDC in the fall of 2022.

NOC 2021 was announced in Canada, and the immigration system will be updated in 2022.

The National Occupational Classification (NOC) is an important aspect of the immigration system in Canada. Candidates for skilled workers and temporary foreign employees must show that their work experience meets the NOC requirements of the programme to which they are applying. For example, Express Entry is the most common option for skilled workers to immigrate to Canada, and candidates must show that their job experience falls under NOC skill levels 0, A, or B as one of the Canada Express Entry eligibility criteria.

The NOC is Canada's national occupational reference. It classifies employment activities in Canada to aid in understanding the structure of the Canadian labour market, the administration of government programmes, the promotion of skills development, research, and the management of Canada's immigration and foreign worker programmes.

The federal government conducts a substantial revision of the NOC every ten years. The NOC has changed in response to changes in the Canadian economy and labour market.

Employment and Social Development Canada and Statistics Canada released NOC 2021 in the month of September.

NOC 2021 is the culmination of a lengthy process that included in-depth research, analysis, and evaluation of the Canadian economy.

Currently, NOC 2016 is used to run immigration and foreign worker programmes by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), ESDC, and Canada's provinces and territories. IRCC and ESDC both stated in an email to CIC News that they will not implement NOC 2021 until the fall of 2022.

The rationale for this is that the federal government wants to give stakeholders more time to understand about how NOC 2021 may affect them, particularly Canada immigration applications.

Changes in Brief

The following is a summary of the modifications to NOC 2021 provided by ESDC:

The NOC's current four-category "skill level" structure has been revamped and replaced with a new six-category system that describes the level of TEER required to enter each occupation. The NOC has had four skill levels up till now. NOC A denotes employment that typically requires a bachelor's degree, NOC B denotes jobs in the skilled trades or a college diploma, NOC C denotes jobs that require intermediate skills or job-specific training, and NOC D denotes jobs that require on-the-job training.

NOC 2021 will classify occupations using a five-tier hierarchical framework. Instead of the present four-digit system, occupations will henceforth be coded with a five-digit system.

NOC 2021 has replaced the four skill type categories (NOC A, B, C, and D) with a six-category TEER system: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.

TEER 0

TEER 4

TEER 5

What influence will Canada immigrants and international employees have?

NOC 2021 will have minimal to no influence on many immigration and foreign worker candidates. Because their work experience will continue to match the eligibility criteria for their preferred Canada immigration or foreign worker programme notwithstanding changes to the NOC, they will be able to apply. The adjustments, on the other hand, will benefit some candidates while harming others. Because their employment experience has been reclassified, some may now be eligible for further programmes. Others may lose their eligibility due to the same reason.

At this time, it's unclear how applications will be affected. Stakeholders will have to wait for more information from the IRCC and the ESDC.

According to Statistics Canada, there are two key reasons why the skill type model is being phased out in favour of the TEER system. To begin with, the TEER system tries to clarify the amount of education and work experience required to work in a certain occupation. Second, Statistics Canada feels that the skill type model artificially divides employment into low- and high-skilled categories. Implementing TEER should provide stakeholders a clearer idea of how many skills are necessary for each job.
