NOC 2016 Version 1.2
The National Occupational Classification (NOC) 2016 Version 1.2 updates the National Occupational Classification 2016 Version 1.1. The NOC has been developed and maintained as part of a collaborative partnership between Employment and Social Development Canada and Statistics Canada. This update of the classification was completed in response to the legalization of cannabis for non-medical use. This has resulted in twenty five new job titles being created in NOC 2016 V1.2 to reflect new occupations in the cannabis industries.
