Nunavut students need dedicated, dynamic and caring teachers. The territory has one of Canada’s youngest and fastest growing populations. The Government of Nunavut is looking for teachers for full-time, indeterminate and term positions in its schools across the territory.

All applicants must have a Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.), be eligible for a Nunavut Professional Teaching Certificate, and submit a current Criminal Record Check (CRC) and a Vulnerable Sector Check (VSC) before appointment to the position can be finalized.

Additional desired qualifications include: subject knowledge, training and experience relevant to the assignment; experience and/or training with current assessment methods; evidence of differentiated instruction and inclusive practices; experience and/or training in classroom management practices and the development of positive learning environments (e.g., Restitution, Tribes, Positive Effective Behaviour Supports, etc.); cross-cultural and/or northern teaching experience; evidence of training and/or experience in the area of Balanced Literacy; training and/or teaching experience in an ESL environment; evidence/experience building positive relationships with students, colleagues, parents, and stakeholders; skills and training using education-related information technology, i.e. SMART Board applications; planning skills (lesson, theme, unit, year, and student support plans); and experience engaging students outside the classroom.

All applicants must be eligible to work in Canada at the time of application. Applicants from outside Nunavut must provide a copy of a current public-school teaching certificate from a jurisdiction recognized by the Nunavut Department of Education or proof of enrollment in the final year of a Canadian Bachelor of Education program. Applications that do not include this documentation will not be considered.

The Department of Education is committed to the promotion of Inuktut and Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit (Inuit Societal Values), improving student literacy, and inclusive education. Knowledge of these will be considered an asset.

Please note: Subsidized staff housing is available but sharing will be required.

Incomplete applications will not be accepted. Only applicants short-listed for an interview will be contacted.

The Government of Nunavut is committed to a more representative workforce to best serve the needs of Nunavummiut. Priority will be given to Nunavut Inuit.
