NOC to TEER

Canadian Immigration department has recently introduced a new skilled system for immigrants. It is called Training, Education, Experience, and Responsibilities (TEER).

The National Occupational Classification (NOC) undergoes a structural revision every ten years, which includes a review of the Classification's structure and existing occupational categories. Introducing the TEER system will focus on the education and experience required to work in a given occupation. The new TEER system has 516 occupations, up from 500 in NOC 2016. New occupations were created to reflect emerging fields in data science, cyber security and others.

Difference between TEER and NOC?

National occupational classification (NO) focus on occupation, not on skills. Where TEER categorization focuses on experience, education, training. NOC is a four-digit code, each code will determine a different occupation. The new TEER system has 5 tired classification systems 0 – 5. The new 5-digit NOC code is defined as follows,

Proof of funds are required to support yourself in Canada during your first month of stay in Canada in other terms uttered as Show money or proof of funds

Noc defined as follows

  1. The first digit represents the broad occupational category
  2. The second digit represents the TEER category
  3. The first two digits together represent the major groups
  4. The first three digits denote the sub-major groups
  5. The first four digits represent the major groups.
  6. The full five digits represent the unit groups or the occupation itself.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is NOC and why it’s introduced?

The National Occupational Classification (NOC) is Canada’s national system of organizing and describing occupations. It can help you locate information about occupations found throughout Canada’s job market. NOC is a useful tool for job seekers. And it’s often used by employers and government agencies (including Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada) to identify skill shortages in the Canadian job market. Every occupation is identified by a four-digit NOC code, each number represents various trait, which demonstrates the type of occupation. They are 5 levels of NOC code 0,A,B,C,D. 0,A,B level NOC's are considered as a skilled occupation, whereas C and D levels are considered as trade occupations.

When was NOC introduced?

The National Occupational Classification was introduced by Employment and social development Canada (ESDC) and Statistics Canada. NOC was established on 1992 and it replaced the Canadian Classification and Dictionary of Occupations (CCDO). NOC structural revision will be planned for every 10 years and it will be updated by every 5 years to identify the labour market changes. At present government is using the NOC 2016 version. It is based on a four-tiered hierarchical order of occupational groups of major, minor and unit groups.

Why NOC now changed to TEER?

NOC will be updated in every 5years. The NOC revision of 2021 was discussed between ESDC and StatCan along with stakeholders. During the discussion, it was encouraged to include a new Level to the NOC 2016 Skill level Categorization to clarify the distinction informal skill requirements between the unit groups. Mainly the current skill level B, which has a wide range of formal training and educational requirement. And they identified that Skill Level categorization, are not considered a skill in the labour market. Hence it was deemed appropriate for the NOC to move away from the skill level categorization.

ESD and Statcan have introduced TEER system (Training, Education, Experience, Responsibilities) to replace the old categorization of Skill Level 0,A,B,C and D. Old system which more focus on occupation rather than skills. The New TEER system will focus on all the aspects based on the labour market. It will also help to extract the artificial creation of low versus high skilled categorization. TEER system contains 516 occupations, up from the 500 unit groups include in the NOC 2016. And the new TEER system will be used from fall 2022.

How the TEER will affects the skilled persons?

When IRCC and ESDC implement NOC 2021, immigration and foreign worker applicants must verify that their NOC matches the program's eligibility criteria to which they are applying. One important area of concern is, how IRCC and ESDC choose to categorize occupations that are now classified as skill level "B." This category has become disproportionately big over time since it comprises jobs that require various degrees of education and experience.

It is presently unknown which TEER categories will be eligible for Express Entry-managed programs as well as other federal and provincial programs that now need a "high skilled" NOC. For the time being, immigration applicants must wait for IRCC and ESDC to give additional information. The new TEER system has 516 occupations, up from 500 in NOC 2016. New occupations were created to reflect emerging fields in data science, cyber security, and others.

what are TEER levels?

1,2,3,4,5 are the new 5 TEER Levels introduced by Canadian government

Abbreviate TEER:

Training, Education, Experience and Responsibilities

Reason for changing NOC to TEER

First, defining occupations on “skill levels” is confusing, as the NOC focuses on occupation and not skills. Introducing the TEER system will focus on the education and experience required to work in a given occupation.

Second, Statistics Canada argues that the previous NOC categorization system artificially creates a low- versus high-skilled categorization. This redesign moves away from the high/low categorization to more accurately capture the skills required in each occupation
