About occupational codes
As a job seeker, knowing the code for your occupation and consulting the 2006 NOC code list can help you to make sure that you meet the requirements of a job.

The National Occupational Classification (NOC) organizes over 40,000 jobs titles into 520 occupational group descriptions. It provides each occupation’s main duties, skills and education requirements.

Occupations are numbered in the following way:
  • Senior management, 00
  • Management, 0
  • Business, finance and administration, 1
  • Natural and applied sciences and related occupations, 2
  • Health, 3
  • Education, law and social, community and government services, 4
  • Art, culture, recreation and sport, 5
  • Sales and service, 6
  • Trades, transport and equipment operators and related occupations, 7
  • Natural resources, agriculture and related production, 8
  • Manufacturing and utilities, 9
Within each of these occupations, there are sub-categories called major groups, which are then further subdivided. For example, a carpenter has a NOC code of 7271 and it is broken out like this:
