Since the year 1992, occupational classification has been introduced in the Canadian Labour Market. The structure was previously known as SOC (Standard Occupational Classification). In the year 2001, the Standard Occupational Classification is being replaced with the latest National Occupational Classification (NOC). One of the basic reasons for the changes is an the introduction of the Canada Immigration program.

  • There are two significant Canadian bodies, Statistics Canada & ESDC (Employment & Social Development Canada) are responsible to design and implement the old and latest Canadian occupational structure.
  • Every ten years the bodies propose the Canada Government to make certain changes in the occupations.
  • On the other end, every five years the bodies suggest the improvisation of the NOC content.
  • Some of the premium reasons are there that signifies that why the changes and improvisation of the content required to update.
  • The first changes in demographics like, as many students completed their graduation. New immigrants move to particular places.
  • Secondly, as new jobs, business ideas emerge that bring new study programs, which make changes in the job market. As a result, new NOC codes need to add to the system.
