National Occupational Classification for Statistics (NOC-S) 2006

Statistics Canada's occupational classification for 2006 is called the National Occupational Classification for Statistics 2006 (NOC-S 2006) to distinguish it from the National Occupational Classification (NOC) put out by the Department of Human Resources and Social Development Canada. (The two classifications differ only in the aggregation structure of the classification). Both provide a complete listing of all the categories under which Canadian jobs are classified and their descriptions. The first use of the NOC-S 2006 was in the 2006 Census of Population.
