Canadian jobs in demand – The 2021 NOC list

The latest list of in-demand jobs in Canada

It’s 2021. it’s time to have new hopes from Canada immigration. It’s fair enough to take advantage of the advances in the COVID-19 vaccination process progressing around the world. It’s wise now to make your way into Canada sooner. With the skills you have, you must be ready to make efforts to immigrate to work in Canada. Why? Because Canada needs people like you.

Canada has always welcomed immigrants. They possess the skillsets and experience that Canadian provinces need. These immigrant workers meet the labor market requirements of these provinces. International workers who arrive in Canada on a Canada Work Visa will find the opportunity to become a Canada PR. They will gain the advantage of even becoming a citizen eventually if they wish to.

When it comes to identifying the jobs that are open for immigrants – jobs that are in demand – you can look up a list. The list of such occupations is called the NOC list. The NOC codes of occupations help you to research:

  • Educational requirements for a particular job
  • Job descriptions
  • Related jobs
  • Skills required

The Canadian employers use the NOC to write job descriptions. With it, they also identify the skills required for new job postings. The government agencies like IRCC use it to identify the shortage of skills in the job market of Canada.

Every 5 years, the NOC is updated by Statistics Canada and ESDC. The following are the NOC Codes of employments in 2021.
