The language details perplex me. Is this position bilingual or not?

Sounds like a fun job, low pay though.

Don't quote me because I have no idea about this posting; my guess is as good as yours.

To me, it looks like they have various language requirements based on the area that you are applying. Some of the areas require bilingualism, and some do not.

That's it right there.
If a man speaks his mind in the forest and a woman doesn't hear it, is he still wrong?

Pay looks pretty decent to me, 55 a year, you can live comfortably off that.

You would have to wonder how many people fill the requirments.

Need to have a Degree in a Earth Science (Bio, Chem, Geo, etc..), and have to have some police training (of sorts RCMP, DFO, CBSA, Parks Canada or other law enforcement training).

Very specific mix of experience.

I applied also. Biology degree, police foundations and a summer job doing lake water sampling. Hoping it at least gets me an interview. The tricky part is resume wording to get the PSRS to pick your resume out.

I assume locations like Ottawa and New Brunswick will be BBB and places like BC and Nova Scotia will be English Essential.

Good luck everyone.

You know, I've never had that problem with PSRS. I usually just cut and paste my standard text resume into it and away I go. Occasionally there will be an online form they'll want you to fill out specifically relating your experience to a series of questions but not always. It's a much more straightforward and voo-doo less way of screening applicants than the Ontario Public Service has. (and more often than not, I get screened in for the jobs I apply for... now that being said I'm a science degree-holding, law enforcement trained, law enforcement experienced current federal civil servant... but I am only uni-lingual English).

I'm dropping one in, too. B.Sc., with OHS training and teaching experience, and have worked for the civil service before. What the heck. Sounds like a good job.

And don't forget the 55k is just a starting salary.
