The Canadian Information Centre for International Credentials

The same occupation can be called different things in different countries. In Canada, organizations use the National Occupational Classification (NOC) to classify and describe occupations.

NOC consists of a specific occupation title (e.g., accountant) and a four-digit NOC code (e.g., 1111), along with a description for the occupation.

To find the title of your occupation in Canada and its NOC code, search the NOC Web site.
