National Occupational Classification 2021
On November 16, 2022, we're switching to the 2021 version of the National Occupational Classification (NOC).
- Use this page if the community will get your application on or before November 15, 2022.
- Use the NOC 2021 page if the community will get your application on or after November 16, 2022.
In addition to the requirements on this page, each community will have their own requirements and job search process. To find a job, you must follow the instructions on their websites.
Once you have a job offer, and meet all the requirements, you can apply for a community recommendation.
