What Jobs are on the Skilled Worker List?

The NOC, or National Occupation Classification, is a special categorizing system used to make sure that all of the occupations in Canada are classified in a certain way. This means that one type of job in one part of the country will be the same as anywhere else. Skilled Worker Job List

The National Occupation Classification is used for many things, from government research to statistical analysis. However, in the case of immigration it is often used for the Federal Skilled Worker program and sometimes the list is referred to as the Skilled Worker List.

There are five types of job categories under the National Occupation Classification, but only experience in three of these categories qualifies for the Federal Skilled Worker program.

The Skilled Worker Job List Categories

The categories of work experience that qualify for the Federal Skilled Worker program are Skill Type 0 (Management Occupations), Skill Level A (Professional and Related Occupations) and Skill Level B (Technical, Skilled Trades and Paraprofessional Occupations). One must have at least a year of full-time experience in one of these job categories before they can be eligible for the Skilled Worker Program.

But this work experience is not the only thing that is needed for the Federal Skilled Worker program application. You will also be assessed on your own personal credentials, such as your offer of arranged employment, your education, your language abilities and your age.

For all of these criteria applicants are awarded points, and they need a certain amount of these points to be eligible. In fact, the Canadian government just revamped this program to make language ability the most important category under this program – meaning high language proficiency in French or English can result in the most points.
