Quebec Sign Language, known in French as Langue des signes québécoise (LSQ), is a sign language used in Canada. Most LSQ users are located in Quebec, but a few are scattered in major cities in the rest of the country.
Although ASL is used in Anglophone parts of Quebec, it is unusual for a deaf child to learn both ASL and LSQ, except in Montreal where there is more association between the two communities.
During televised proceedings of the House of Commons of Canada, an LSQ interpretation of what is being said during Question Period can usually be seen at the top-right corner of the screen.
^a Sign-language names reflect the region of origin. Natural sign languages are not related to the spoken language used in the same region. For example, French Sign Language originated in France, but is not related to French.
