Those intending to complete the programs offered in cooperation with the Kativik School Board must be fluent and literate in Inuktitut/Inuinnaqtun. Fluency in Algonquin, Cree, Mi'kmaq, Mohawk, or Naskapi is not a condition for acceptance for applicants from these communities, but is considered an asset. Courses are available in all four of these languages for those teaching in immersion classes and other teaching situations where a knowledge of the first language is essential.

An applicant will normally be employed as a teacher or as a classroom assistant, have a valid teaching authorization from the appropriate teaching authority or a community education committee, be recommended by the school principal and an officer of the education authority, be recommended by a local community education committee, and be at least 21 years of age. Younger applicants will be considered for admission if they hold a Grade 12 Secondary School Diploma or a Diploma of Collegial Studies. The right of final decision for acceptance of candidates rests with McGill.
