Occupational Classification 2006 (NOC) provides a standardized
language for describing the work performed by Canadians in the labour market.
It is used for many applications including defining and collecting statistics,
managing information databases, analyzing labour market trends and extracting
practical career planning information. More importantly, it gives
statisticians, labour market analysts, career counsellors, employers and
individual job seekers a consistent way to collect data and describe and
understand the nature of work.
The NOC is developed in collaboration with Statistics Canada according to 5 year Census cycles. It is based on extensive occupational research and consultation conducted across the country, reflecting the evolution of the Canadian labour market. By providing a standard way of organizing labour market information, the NOC helps all Canadians to be better informed about the world of work.
The NOC 2006 provides accurate and up-to-date descriptions of over 500 occupational groups that cover approximately 30,000 job titles.
