What is my job title in Canada? The National Occupational Classification

In Canada, the National Occupational Classification (NOC) is a system developed to define and classify jobs. Many of Canada’s immigration programs use the NOC system to determine if a job or work experience is relevant according to the criteria of the program. This video will guide you in finding the right NOC code and allow you to better present your experience to Canadian employers and immigration officials.
