Ontario is planning to transition to the new NOC 2021

Public consultations on the implementation of NOC 2021 and revisions to the language and educational requirements for several Employer Job Offer streams have already started under the OINP.

The new NOC system is already in use by Employment Development Canada (EDSC) and Statistics Canada, while Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) will be implementing the  changes in the system in November.

The OINP will be impacted by this change because it will change which jobs are acceptable for each stream. For instance, the Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) in Ontario, which once needed a job offer or work experience in NOC skill types 0, A, or B, will now come under TEER 0, 1, 2, or 3.

The Employment Offer In-Demand Skills stream of the OINP, which previously needed job offers in specific NOC Skill Level C or D occupations, would now call for job offers in specific TEER 4 or 5 occupations under NOC 2021, according to the changes. Some occupations’ NOC labels will change under NOC 2021, which will affect which streams they are eligible for.

Full details of the new NOC system are available on the Statistics Canada website and on IRCC’s website. The OINP  will also be posting updates on its website.

New NOC System to affect Express Entry eligibility

IRCC is expected to implement NOC 2021 on November 16. The change in Express Entry-eligible occupations will consequently impact eligibility to Ontario’s Express Entry-aligned PNPs.

Following the changes on November 16th,  16 occupations will become eligible for Express Entry :

  • Estheticians, electrologists and related occupations
  • Residential and commercial installers and servicers
  • Pest controllers and fumigators
  • Other repairers and servicers
  • Transport truck drivers
  • Bus drivers, subway operators and other transit operators
  • Heavy equipment operators
  • Aircraft assemblers and aircraft assembly inspectors
  • Payroll administrators
  • Dental assistants and dental laboratory assistants
  • Nurse aides, orderlies, and patient service associates
  • Pharmacy technical assistants and pharmacy assistants
  • Elementary and secondary school teacher assistants
  • Sheriffs and bailiffs
  • Correctional service officers
  • By-law enforcement and other regulatory officers

These three occupations will become ineligible specifically through Ontario’s Immigrant Nominee Program:

  • Other performers
  • Program leaders and instructors in recreation, sport, and fitness
  • Tailors, dressmakers, furriers, and milliners

The above occupations will still remain eligible in other programs with broader job eligibility requirements, such as certain PNP streams.
