National Occupational Code is the national system of Canada that classifies the jobs based on the duty and work of a person. It is a recognised and standardised system that assigns a four-digit code along with the job description to every occupation in the Canadian market.
Every single occupation in the Canadian labour market holds a NOC code. The Code is assigned using the NOC matrix. Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada use the NOC finder Canada to evaluate the immigrant’s profile based on their work experience. The NOC codes are one of the most prime parts of the immigration application. The immigrant has to claim a NOC code that goes well with their profile.
