In the Canadian government, does one have the choice to be polygraphed in either English or in French? Wink

Yes, if you’re applying from Quebec and only speak French, for example to CSIS at a regional office in Quebec, then they would have to offer testing in your official language of choice (French). CSIS is an offshoot of the RCMP.

La Verite,

Merci pour vos informations.  Et au Quebec, la RCMP
naturellement c'est la GRC! Combien des polygraphes peuvent parler francais?   Grin

What do we call it when every employee of the Agency's Office of Security
and Office of Personnel drowns in the Potomac?   A great beginning!

The best intelligence community employee is a compromised IC employee!
