Following the introduction of the National Occupation Classification (NOC) 2021, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has confirmed disruptions in the Express Entry system. Unfortunately, Provincial Nominee Programs candidates were also impacted by this technical glitch. IRCC has stated that they are actively investigating these issues and striving to find solutions.

Furthermore, IRCC asserts that candidates should check for updates regularly as more information becomes accessible.
