Canada Skilled Occupation List 2024 (New NOC list)

If you are moving to a new country as a skilled worker, your occupation must be in demand in that country. It’s obvious that every country wants the people who possess skills and experience in the occupations which are highly in demand across its various provinces and territories and Canada is no exception to the same.

However, unlike Australia, Canada don’t publish any Skilled Occupation list on annual basis, rather it has a list classifying the occupations as per local labour market.

Hence, the applicants looking to apply permanent residency in Canada as a skilled worker, need to have skills and experience, matching any of the NOC occupations categories as per the program requirement.


IRCC has switched to new NOC 2021 system from old NOC 2016?

The ESDC (Employment and Social Development Canada) and Statistics Canada announced a new TEER based NOC System 2021 Version 1, and consequently a new NOC Canada List, i.e. National Occupational Classification (NOC) is now appplicable.  From November 16, 2022, Express Entry, Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) and other crucial immigration programs of Canada have moved to the new NOC 2021 Version-1 from old NOC 2016 System.

The NOC every 10 years undertakes a major structural amendment whereby the structure of the Classification and the existing occupational groups are evaluated. The new Canada NOC list, i.e. NOC 2021 is the product of this 10-year cycle. It replicate changes in the economy and in the nature of work.?
