Standard Occupational Classification - ARCHIVED
The Standard Occupational Classification provides a systematic classification structure to identify and categorize the entire range of occupational activity in Canada. This up-to-date classification is based upon, and easily related to, the National Occupational Classification. It consists of 10 broad occupational categories which are subdivided into major groups, minor groups and unit groups. Definitions and occupational titles are provided for each unit group. An alphabetical index of the occupational titles classified to the unit group level is also included.
This standard was replaced by the 'National Occupational Classification for Statistics (NOC-S) 2001' as of March 19, 2001.
