NOC Codes That Start in 72

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)?

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 72:

If you have experience in one of these occupations within the last five years, go ahead and say so on the dropdown for the answer. It might impact your eligibility.

Other NOCs mentioned on the same question

These other occupations are also mentioned on the same question during the eligibility questionnaire.

Go through them to see if you have experience on any of them.
