IMPACT — MEDIUM
The Canadian government recently announced that it will soon transition to the 2021 National Occupational Classification system.
Additional Information: The transition to the 2021 NOC system may affect prevailing wages for various occupations; however, Canadian authorities have yet to announce these changes.
BAL Analysis: The 2021 NOC system is expected to affect those applying through permanent residence and temporary work permit programs, including Express Entry, the Atlantic Immigration Program and the Provincial Nominee Program, among others. Those affected by the transition to the 2021 NOC system change should note the updated eligibility requirements to avoid possible complications and/or delays. BAL will provide more information on the transition to the 2021 NOC and the impact it may have on prevailing wages when it becomes available.
