Why has NOC 0011 changed to NOC 00010?

Every seven to ten years Canadian Immigration adjusts the National Occupation Classification Code to reflect changes in immigration and the economy. It also reflects the broader needs of employers and the overall nature of work in Canada. The NOC is developed and maintained between Statistics Canada (STC) and Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC).

The old Skill Levels were based on four categories; Skill Level A, B, C, D.

These have been replaced with levels of Training, Education, Experience and Responsibility (TEER).
