The CBQ-SF (Children’s Behavior Questionnaire—Short Form,Putnam and Rothbart 2006) is used to assess temperament in children. The aim of this study was to validate a French Canadian version of the CBQ-SF. The sample included 318 children aged between 6 and 9 years. Temperament was assessed at two different times over a one-year period. Children’s behavioral problems were also assessed to allow the examination of the concurrent validity of the French Canadian version. The results confirmed the factorial structure established with the original version of the instrument and showed that the reliability and validity of the French Canadian version of the CBQ-SF were satisfactory.
