    The National Occupational Classification, or NOC, was created by the federal government to group jobs together based on skill level and duties performed. A job that falls under a NOC code in Canada has specific requirements that must be met in order to obtain the job.

    Find out more about all of the different types of NOC jobs that are available in Canada.

    What is the National Occupational Classification (NOC)?

    The National Occupational Classification (NOC) is the national system of Canada to describe occupations. The national system assigns a two to four-digit code to every occupation. Moreover, there is a job description that explains the education requirements and duties for each occupation. 

    Canada’s immigration programs use the National Occupational Classification (NOC) to determine if an applicant is eligible or not. They have divided the NOC program into various segments making it easier to understand them. 

    Canadas’s NOC program skill levels

    The NOC program is divided into 5 levels of skills:

    • Skill Type 0: Management Jobs;
    • Skill Level A: Professional jobs requiring specific academic backgrounds;
    • Skill Level B: Technical jobs and trades job;
    • Skill Level C: Jobs usually require only high school education;
    • Skill Level D: Labour jobs with no formal education requirement

    The list below contains links to all of Canada’s NOC skill levels. Please use search (Ctrl+F) to search for a specific job title or occupation.

    Note: Canada considers NOC Skill Type 0, A, and B as “skilled” jobs.
