The National Occupational Classification (NOC) is a system used by the Canadian government to assess and classify occupations in the labor market. These occupations have been assessed and classified into several groups in the NOC, which is based on the type of work the worker is doing as well as the worker’s position in those jobs.
As an alternative to job classification based on skill level, the Government of Canada will classify jobs based on the Training, Education, Experience, Responsibilities (TEER) system. .
- The Level 0, A, B, C and D grading system will be replaced by the TEER Category.
- The 4-digit NOC code will be replaced by a 5-digit number.
|NIGHT 2016||NIGHT 2021|
|Skill type O||TEER 0|
|Skill type A||TEER 1|
|Skill type B||TEER 2 & TEER 3|
|Skill type C||TEER 4|
|Skill type D||TEER 5|
Statistics Canada argues that the change to the TEER classification system will provide:
- Classify high/low level occupations more accurately;
- There is a greater focus on the education and experience required to work in a certain profession.
