Hiring Process

Hiring Process

Nunavut has a territory-wide priority hiring policy . Priority is given to beneficiaries of the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement (NLCA), graduates of the Nunavut Teacher Education Program (NTEP), and educators with northern experience. All positions require up-to-date criminal record and vulnerable sector checks. 

The three Regional School Operations and the Commission scolaire francophone du Nunavut (RSOs/CSFN) typically do an initial screening of applicants and then forward the successfully screened applicants’ information to the school’s hiring committee. Only successful applicants are contacted for interviews. Applicants considered for a position are usually contacted by email or phone, and then do either a phone or in-person interview. The timeline for this overall hiring process varies but it usually takes two to three weeks from the time the job posting closes to when a successful candidate is hired.  


It is the Government of Nunavut’s priority ….

“….to have more well-educated and self-reliant Nunavummiut. We want a majority of youth to graduate from high school, college or university with the same level of capability as graduates anywhere in Canada….It is a place where Nunavummiut speak, read and write fluently in at least two languages, and live comfortably in the modern world with traditional cultures and values….”
