Understanding the Importance of National Occupation Code (NOC)

Immigration and the NOC

As you may know, the Canadian government allows a foreign national that come from a variety of different fields, educational backgrounds, and work experience to obtain permanent residency in Canada under specific federal economic immigration programs. This is also known as the Express Entry immigration system. By applying for Express Entry, you are essentially establishing a mutually beneficial relationship with the Canadian Government. That being said, while you are obtaining your permanent residency, you are also contributing to the Canadian Labour Market and the economy. Since your job is an essential part of this type of immigration, you will need to make sure that you meet the strict rules set by Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada. One of the rules for Express Entry is meeting the descriptions on the National Occupation Classification (NOC). In this blog, you will learn about what National Occupation Classification (NOC) is and how to select your NOC code.

What is the National Occupation Classification

The National Occupation Classification, also known as the NOC, is a list of all the occupations in the Canadian labor market. It describes the type of work performed by Canadians in the labour market according to skill type and skill level. The type of work usually is determined by the task, duties, and responsibility within the occupation. The classification gives employers, job seekers, statisticians, labour market analysts, career counselors insightful information that allows them to better understand the nature of work and what type of experience is needed to apply for a program. The NOC tool has a four digit code which represents important information that helps classify the occupation. For example, 0011 Legislator- the “001” indicates that the position is for legislators who are in senior management.

Apply for a Provincial Nominee Program

Apply for a Provincial Nominee Program

What is a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)?

Through the Express Entry program; which helps valuable, highly skilled foreign nationals immigrate to Canada as permanent residents, there are various “provincial nominee programs.” Provinces and territories in Canada, with the exception of Quebec, can chose to nominate individuals and persons with certain skills and certain qualities to immigrate to Canada through the Provincial Nomination Program (PNP). This allows provincial governments to have better control of the services and employment sectors in their region, and ensure the employment market remains driven and competitive. The idea is the individuals who are being nominated into these programs, have skills or qualities which will be valuable to the Canadian labor market, and the economy.

How Do the Provincial Nominee Programs Work?

Each province and territory has a special “stream” under which they nominate foreign nationals to immigrate to their province. A “stream” is a program that targets certain groups depending on the qualifications and skills the individual has, which are necessary for a certain occupation. For example, a program in any given province or territory may target students of certain education, business people specialized in certain sectors, skilled workers or semi-skilled works.

Record Low for Express Entry Draw

Record Low for Express Entry Draw

Start of 2018 Brings Record Low for Express Entry Draw

One of 2018’s first draws, on January 24, had approximately 2, 750 invitations for Express Entry candidates to apply for permanent residency in Canada. It is important to note that the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score was cut off at 444, which is a reduction of two points compared to the Express Entry draw that was made on January 10, 2018. With the previous five draws that were made by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), the tie-break rule began which means that any and all candidates that had a CRS score of above 444 as well as those who scored exactly 444 would be invited into the Express Entry pool and will receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA). In this article, I will address more information pertaining to the new record lows for Express Entry draws and how it affects the Express Entry immigration system altogether.

Record Low on Express Entry Draw

Interestingly enough, the first two draws of 2018 are already lower than the previous year of 2017. The draws made in the first two draws of 2017 already set record lows; therefore, these new draws and the CRS scores are now even lower and are making new records. This is very interesting as well because in previous years, specifically in 2015, the first two draws had records of upwards of 800 for the CRS scores. Therefore, they have almost been cut in half.

These steps are taken in order for the foreign worker to immigrate to Canada as a skilled worker. You may be able to hire this individual by offering them a job through Express Entry. Specifically, Express Entry is an advanced system that is utilized to manage applications for economic immigration programs, such as the Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Federal Skilled Trades Program, and the Canadian Experience Class.

What you need to know in order to Work in Canada

In order to work in Canada, you must first be well-prepared and accumulate the proper documentation to provide to a prospect employer. There are several steps that you must take beforehand as well as documents that you are required to provide. When looking to work in Canada, Immigration must be able to analyze the documents in English and verify that the information is relevant in Canadian standards. Therefore, in this article, I will explain what is needed before working in Canada, such as getting your credentials assessed accordingly, assessing your language ability, finding a job in Canada, and how to get a Social Insurance Number (SIN).

Getting your Credentials Assessed

Depending on how you intend on coming to Canada, you must first have your education, work experience or professional credentials assessed. This must be done if you are coming to Canada as a Federal Skilled Worker under Express Entry, coming to Canada to work in a specific profession or trade, and/or coming to Canada to study. The reason for the credentials being assessed is for the Immigration officer to analyze whether your credentials can be equated to a Canadian standard. For instance, the credential assessment will allow you to see whether your credentials are equal to Canadian worker’s standards; to find out whether more training, education or Canadian work experience is required from you; to understand what kinds of jobs you are qualified for; and lastly, to assist employers in understanding your qualifications.
