The Trésor de la langue française au Québec (TLFQ) is a project created in the 1970s with the primary objective of establishing a scientific infrastructure for research into the history of Quebec French and, also, its current usage.[1] The project is affiliated to the Centre interdisciplinaire de recherches sur la activités langagières (CIRAL) at Université Laval.

The main fruit of the project is the Dictionnaire historique du français québécois, published in 1998. It has also contributed to other dictionaries, such as the Dictionnaire du français Plus (1988), the Dictionnaire universel francophone, the Dictionnaire du français acadien (1999), and the Petit Larousse (2001 to 2006 editions).

Since the late 1990s, the TLFQ has led the international project Base de données lexicographiques panfrancophone (BDLP), whose goal is to develop and bring together databases representative of the French used in Francophonie member countries.
