National Occupational Classification (NOC)

The NOC is an overview of job titles, responsibilities, and immigration “points.” If you are looking to apply for permanent residence post-graduation, the NOC will help you determine what jobs will give you the necessary “points” to qualify.

To find your job code:

  • Scroll down to the “Find your job title, code and skill type” and enter a position title.
  • Select the correct area of employment from the drop-down menu, noting the 4-digit NOC number on the left side column and the skill level on the right.
  • Click on the position and then enter the 4-digit NOC number in the “Quick Search” box on the new page.
  • Review the employment requirements, duties, and any additional information you may need for that position title.
