The first Express Entry draw has been conducted since the launch of the new National Occupational Classification system. This is the eleventh draw since all-program draws resumed on July 6.

In the November 23 draw, 4,750 candidates with scores of at least 491 in the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) were invited to apply. Eligible candidates were invited from the Canadian Experience Class (CEC), Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) and the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP). All are programs that operate under the Express Entry system.

As per the tie-break rule, candidates who had the minimum score were only included if they had submitted their profiles before October 13, 2022 11:22:17 UTC.

This was the 24th round of invitations under Express Entry in 2022 and 236th overall.

New Express Entry applications will be processed within six months, according to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada. There is a 60-day window for candidates to submit their applications.

ITAs are the same as in the previous two draws on November 9 and October 26. With each round, CRS scores continue to decline by two to three points.

Canada moved to NOC 2021 on November 16

The IRCC has introduced NOC 2021, a revised version of NOC 2016, the National Occupation Classification (NOC) system used to identify an Express Entry candidate’s profession and skill level.

The new system categorizes occupations according to their training, education, experience, and responsibility (TEER). New TEER system replaces NOC 2016’s skill levels 0-E with five equivalent TEERS.

The 16 new occupations are listed below.
