National Occupation Classification Canada

The National Occupational Classification(NOC) is Canada’s national system of organizing and describing occupations. It can help you locate information about occupations found throughout Canada’s job market.

The NOC is a useful tool for job seekers. You can use it to research:

  1. Job descriptions
  2. Educational requirements
  3. Required skills
  4. Related occupations

The NOC is often used by employers to help them write job descriptions and identify skill requirements for new job postings.The NOC is also used by many government agencies(including Immigration,Refugees and Citizenship Canada) to identify skills shortages in the Canadian job market. The NOC is updated every 5 years by Employment and Social Development Canada and Statistics Canada.
