Canada is one of the most immigrant-friendly countries in the world that provides exceptional job opportunities to talented, skilled, and determined individuals to enter the country and contribute their best to the economy. There are a number of programs through which candidates can enter the country. But, the Express Entry Program is the most prominent and beneficial program that allows for skilled and talented working individuals seeking better opportunities and stability outside their home country. 

The Express Entry program operates on a system that manages candidates’ applications for Canadian permanent residence based on the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). In this program, various eligible occupation classification groups are bifurcated in the TEER system. 

This blog will offer detailed information about the TEER system in Canada and the job occupations that fall under different TEER categories. 

What is the NOC system?

The National Occupational Classification (NOC) system is a standardized classification system that provides information and helps categorize and distinguish job occupations in Canada. The TEER NOC system is highly beneficial for government authorities to categorize jobs for immigration programs and other purposes. The NOC system bifurcates occupations based on skills, education, and experience required for the job. 

Each occupation group is assigned a unique digit code that helps government authorities identify and classify it within the NOC frame. For immigration purposes, the NOC system plays a vital role in determining the eligibility of individuals applying through the Express Entry Program. Hence, before applying for any immigration program such as Express Entry, Canadian Experience Class, or more, identify the occupation in the NOC system to determine if it matches one of the eligible occupations listed by the program. 

It is significant to understand that the NOC system is regularly updated to reflect the changes in the Canadian job market and to accommodate emerging job opportunities within the country. Hence, you must stay updated with the changes in the NOC to TEER system in Canada based on market fluctuations.

How does the new TEER system impact the Express Entry program?

There are possibilities of the new IRCC TEER system in Canada altering the eligibility criteria for the Express Entry program, including the Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Canadian Experience Class, and the Federal Skilled Trades program. The new TEER system allows candidates to move to higher levels or TEER categories based on their work experience and skills, even if they lack particular or appropriate educational qualifications. 

In some cases, the long-term experience can be equivalent to a degree/certificate required to qualify for a specific TEER job category. To know more about the CIC employer portal or other aspects of the immigration process, reach out to our legal professionals.
