If at the time of enrolment, your declared "French" as your primary language, then all your training will/should be conducted in French as long as it is available.  You might wait a bit longer and if that's the case, then you can always improve on your English skills and will be given the opportunity to do so. 

Kind of a pain but you're still getting paid!     :)
Got a question that you're afraid to ask online?  PM me!  I don't bite........

There's always far more English training available than French. Ask your chain of command after basic and they can help you get signed up.

In some cases Francophone candidates are sent immediately on language training upon graduation from Basic, before being sent to their Trade courses.  It is also an option offered to some when there is a long wait for their Trade courses to begin.
