National Occupational Classification 2021
Employers, please note that this information will be very useful to you to submit your job listing.
Service Canada is switching to the 2021 version of the National Occupational Classification (NOC). This means that
- the current NOC 2016 skill type and skill level structure (NOC 0, A, B, C and D) will be replaced with a 6-category system representing the training, education, experience and responsibilities (TEER) needed to work in an occupation
- 4-digit occupation codes will become 5-digit codes
- we’ll update the eligibility criteria for all programs that use the NOC
New TEER categories
Programs that used the NOC skill type or levels will now use TEER categories.
- Most jobs will stay in the TEER category that is equal to the skill level in the table below.
- Some jobs may change to a different TEER category.
- Skill level B jobs may become TEER 2 or TEER 3 jobs.
- Find your occupation under the NOC 2021 list to find out what TEER category it belongs to.
