Notice of release of the National Occupational Classification (NOC) 2016 Version 1.3

Update and revision process

The National Occupational Classification (NOC) has been developed and maintained as part of a collaborative partnership between Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) and Statistics Canada.

This update of the classification was completed as part of our evergreening process, which includes a review and update to the current NOC to ensure it reflects current trends in the labour market. This has resulted in a few new titles and the application of a revised style format to the Leading Statements and Main Duties of NOC unit groups to improve consistency and provide a better flow to the information.
