It should say something about when the average applies to though; if is all four years of your program, the last year or the last two. The fact it doesn't is kind of odd.
A McMaster academic councilor can't help you; they don't know anything about programs from other schools. Your best bet is to contact the other school's graduate secretary directly.
I'd also like to point out that a B is the absolute minimum average you'd need to have your application looked at in-depth. Your overall application package is considered, and meeting the minimum for the most part doesn't cut it. I've had over the required average (and in one case by two grade points) and I still wasn't accepted.
