Year-long French course means you either go to a Bilingual unit, or French language only unit.
As an Infantry Officer, you will NOT necessarily be posted to such a unit. If you demonstrate potential, then the Regiment will place you on French Language training at the appropriate time in your career. This is just as likely to take place in Edmonton, Shilo, Petawawa or Gagetown as it is to happen anywhere else. You can help yourself by a) getting tested, and b) indicating your willingness to attend SLT by telling your Boss, and by doing whatever training you can on your own time (keeping in mind that you will be very busy with your job, OPMEs etc).
Bottom line - be good at your primary function and the rest will fall into place.
What Regiment are you planning on joining?
