Why has NOC 4164 changed to NOC 41403?

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).

In 2021 a new National Occupation Code index was announced. This new 2021 NOC List replaces all previous versions of the Canadian NOC List.

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).

Every NOC Code and Occupation now has a TEER level for Immigration purposes rather than one of the traditional Skill Levels.
