The new 2021 National Occupation Classification (NOC) taxonomy has been incorporated into the backend of the system. New incoming job posts will now be scanned for 2021 NOC matches in addition to 2016 NOC matches. Historical job posts in each system will also be re-analyzed for 2021 NOC matches and tagged accordingly.
The 2016 NOC taxonomy is not going away anytime soon. We have not yet identified a timeline for incorporating the 2021 NOC taxonomy into the remaining tools, but would value your input on appropriate timing to inform our product roadmap.
Importantly, while most 2021 NOC codes have a direct mapping to a 2016 NOC code, this is not always the case. In some situations, a single 2016 NOC code has been split into two 2021 NOC codes. In these scenarios, job postings will not be automatically assigned a corresponding 2021 NOC code.
The Labour Market Insights report will now be generally available. This report replaces the Job Demand Report and Job Search Report.
The Clients & Leads table now shows Client and Lead results in a paginated list so that all records can be accessed. More improvements to this screen are coming soon.
As part of the Work Trends project, this new tool will be published on the Workforce Planning Ontario website sometime between now and March 31, 2023. It aggregates employers and job postings from across the province, and allows exploration of occupation demand and trends for each workforce development region.
