Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) will complete the transition from (National Occupational Classification) NOC 2016 to NOC 2021 in November 2022, the memorandum confirms.

Once this is done, the following occupations will be added:

  • 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
