National Occupational Classification

The National Occupational Classification (NOC) system, developed by the federal government, classifies every job in Canada and assigns it a four-digit National Occupational Classification code.

Your NOC code will determine your eligibility to apply to the AAIP.


The International Qualifications Assessment Service (IQAS) will assess your foreign educational credentials and provide information on how your credentials compare to educational standards in Canada.


The AAIP accepts educational documents, work reference letters or other documents in English or French. Documents in other languages may require translation. Details on translation requirements are included in AAIP Document Checklists for each stream.
