NOC Codes That Start in 82

When you fill the IRCC eligibility questionnaire to see if you are eligible to immigrate to Canada, this question will pop up:

In the last five years, do you have at least two years of experience in one of these types of jobs (skilled trades)?
  • industrial, electrical and construction trades (NOC codes that start in 72)
  • maintenance and equipment operation trades (NOC codes that start in 73)
  • supervisors and technical jobs in natural resources, agriculture and related production (NOC codes that start in 82)
  • processing, manufacturing and utilities supervisors and central control operators (NOC codes that start in 92)
  • chefs and cooks or (NOC codes that start in 632)
  • butchers and bakers (NOC codes that start in 633

IRCC asks this because these groups of professions are considered skilled trades, and the Federal Skilled Trades Program (which is also processed through the Express Entry process) specifically looks for people with experience on those jobs .

To see if you have experience in one of those occupations, look for your job on the lists below.

Full list of occupations with NOC codes that start in 82:
NOC Code Occupations
8211 Supervisors, logging and forestry
8221 Supervisors, mining and quarrying

8255 Contractors and supervisors, landscaping, grounds maintenance and horticulture services
8261 Fishing masters and officers
