Welcome to the National Occupational Classification 2011

The 2011 National Occupational Classification (NOC) is currently being updated. The updated NOC will be available in 2016. Statistics Canada is soliciting input from data producers and data users in order to ensure their needs continue to be met by the NOC, and from individuals, user groups, industry representatives and occupational experts to ensure that the descriptive information contained in the NOC remains current. All submissions will be managed jointly by ESDC and Statistics Canada. To provide us with your comments, please visit Statistics Canada.

The NOC 2006 Website is available here.

The National Occupational Classification (NOC) 2011 is the authoritative resource on occupational information in Canada. It is used daily by thousands of people to understand the jobs found throughout Canada's labour market. Learn more about the NOC 2011.

The NOC 2011 updates both the National Occupational Classification 2006 of Human Resources and Skills Development Canada and Statistics Canada’s National Occupational Classification for Statistics (NOC-S) 2006. This revised edition eliminates the differences between the two former systems.
