National Occupational Classification

On September 21st 2021, Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) and Statistics Canada released the new National Occupational Classification (NOC) 2021 for data collection purposes. ESDC’s programs are expected to start the implementation process of the NOC 2021 in late 2022 as survey and census data based on the new classification becomes available.

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.
