National Occupational Classification 2021

On November 16, 2022, the new version of the National Occupational Classification (NOC) 2021 will be implemented.

The key changes will be:

  • 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

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.
