There are 30,000 jobs titled by NOC codes and gathered into 500-unit groups in NOC 2016 Version 1.3, according to 4 Skill levels and 10 Broad Occupational Categories (BOC). In a unit group, everything is based on similarities of skills, defined by functions and requirements of employment. It may be linked directly to an occupation or to more than one occupation.

On 16, November 2022, Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) programs started migrating to the latest NOC 2021 version 1.0. Approximately every 10 years, the national occupational classification meets a major structural change and the entire framework of the classified and the existing occupational groups are reviewed. In NOC 2016 Version 1.3, the skill level is based on the nature of education and training required to be employed in a particular occupation. The NOC consists of four skill levels, which are identified from A to D. It can be identified using the second digit of the NOC code. Every skill level is assigned two digits ranging from 0 to 7. For example, when the second digit of a NOC code is 0 or 1, then the skill level is associated with the NOC code A. But now the new NOC 2021 version 1.0 represents NOC code 1 instead of NOC code A.

In the previous version, the NOC skill level had a four-category system, but now in NOC 2021 version 1.0, it has been replaced with a new six-category system called Training, Education, Experience and Responsibilities (TEER) categories. 

The different levels and the number of categories within each level of NOC 2021 Version 1.0:

  • Broad Categories: The Broad category, the first digit of the NOC code, represents the occupational categorization defined by the work performed, the field of study and the industry of employment. There are 10 broad occupational categories in NOC 2021 version 1.0.
  • TEER categories: The TEER category, the second digit of the NOC code, represents the necessary training, education, experience, and responsibilities of the occupation. In the TEER system, there are 6 TEER categories in NOC 2021 version 1.0.
  • Major groups: The Major group, the first and second digits of the NOC code, is the combination of broad occupational categorization (first digit) and TEER categorization (second digit). In Major groups, there are 45 groups in NOC 2021 version 1.0, it encompasses many sub-major groups and thus represents the 2-digit code used by the NOC.
  • Sub-major groups: The 3-digit, Sub-major group, represents the aggregation of many minor groups and thus represents the 3-digit code used by the NOC. There are 89 sub-major groups in NOC 2021 version 1.0.
  • Minor groups: The 4-digit, Minor group, represents the domain in which an occupation is carried out. It is an aggregation of many unit groups and thus it represents the 4-digit code used by the NOC. There are 162 minor groups in NOC 2021 version 1.0.

Unit groups: The 5-digit, Unit group, represents one or several occupations combined within the NOC. It is the most detailed level of the classification. There are 516 unit groups in NOC 2021 version 1.0.
