How to apply to work as an educational assistant in Whitehorse

Educational Assistants are hired from an Educational Assistant Replacement List.

To be eligible for the Educational Assistant Replacement List, an application and screening process must be completed.

Application and Screening Process

  1. Applicants must submit a complete application package to, (867) 393-6423, or in person at the Department of Education.
  2. This package must consist of:
    1. A resume demonstrating that the applicant meets the minimum qualifications and experience requirements:
