Starting November 2022, 16 new Occupations will become eligible for Express Entry and three will become ineligible.

This memorandum will replace the current skill level-based classification to a new Training, Education, Experience, and Responsibilities (TEER) classification.

The TEER levels 0 to 5 do not directly correspond to the existing Skill Type 0 and Skill Level A to D.

The TEER system is replacing the skill type model for two key reasons, according to Statistics Canada. To begin with, the TEER system tries to clarify the amount of education and work experience necessary to operate in a certain profession. Second, the skill type model artificially divides jobs into low- and high-skilled categories. The goal of implementing TEER is to provide stakeholders a better understanding of the skills needed for each occupation.
