What changes have recently been made to Express Entry?

Changes as of November 16, 2022

On November 16, 2022, we switched to the 2021 version of the National Occupational Classification (NOC). This means that

  • the NOC 2016 skill type and skill level structure (NOC 0, A, B, C and D) was replaced with a 6 category system representing the training, education, experience and responsibilities (TEER) needed to work in an occupation
  • 4-digit occupation codes became 5-digit codes
  • Eligiblity criteria was updated for all programs that use the NOC.
