The REA Foundation is currently funding the renewal of Quebec Sign Language (LSQ) training material.
The Installation Raymond-Dewar has been providing Quebec Sign Language training for close to 40 years. An incredible number of people have come to Raymond-Dewar to learn the language as well as the culture of the deaf community. In the last five years alone (2012-2016), more than 2600 people between the ages of 11 and 79 have participated in different levels of training (LSQ 1 to 6).
This is often their first contact with a deaf person, since instruction is provided by deaf instructors. For this reason, and because LSQ instruction is so important for the Installation Raymond-Deawr and the CIUSSS, the REA Foundation decided to support this project to modernize and update the teaching material (the last revision was in 1997).
Project amount: 23 035$
