Now as the system has been updated, so there are some steps you need to take into your consideration. For example, if you are a candidate and you have already submitted your express entry profile. But if you are just in the EOI stage then you must need to update your NOC with the latest version and resubmit your Express Entry profile.
On the other side, if you are planning to apply for Canada PR and still you have not submitted your profile then you need to finalize your NOC first and then you should submit your profile. Selection of the correct NOC is one of the important tasks because your provincial nomination depends on that. Secondly, as per the profile criteria, you can select only one NOC Code as a primary NOC so the selection of your occupation code plays a bigger role.
