National Occupational Classification

Starting November 16, 2022, Employment and Social Development Canada programs are migrating to the NOC 2021 version 1.0. For more information on the NOC 2021 version 1.0, you can consult the "Hierarchy and Structure", "NOC Versions" or “NOC 2021” sections, further down on this Web page. The "About the NOC" section will be updated over the coming months, in order to better reflect the features of this new version of the NOC.

The National Occupational Classification (NOC) is Canada’s national system for describing occupations.
You can search the NOC to find where an occupation is classified or to learn about its main duties, educational requirements or other useful information.
