What is NOC Code and how to find my NOC code for Canada Immigration? NOC Code stands for National Occupational Classification Code

The National Occupational Classification (NOC) is a standardized system that assigns a four-digit code known as the NOC Code to every occupation in Canada.

NOC code carries details of job responsibilities and educational qualifications that employers may require for candidates wanting to work in a particular job in Canada.

The National Occupational Classification (NOC) code plays an important part in immigrating to Canada through the Express Entry program. While job roles falling under NOC Codes 0, A, and B are eligible for Express Entry, job roles falling under NOC Code C is not eligible for immigrating to Canada under Express Entry program.

Along with checking your NOC Code, you may also use the CRS Calculator to check your Comprehensive Ranking System Score. If you have any questions, please post at Canada Immigration Forum.
