The Réseau du sport étudiant du Québec
(RSEQ) formerly known as the Quebec Student Sports Federation
(QSSF) is the governing body of primary and secondary school, collegiate and university sport in Quebec. It also serves as a regional membership association for Canadian
universities which assists in co-ordinating competition between their university level athletic programs and providing contact information, schedules, results, and releases about those programs and events to the public and the media. This is similar to what would be called a "college athletic conference" in the United States. The RSEQ, which covers Quebec
, is one of four such bodies that are members of the country's governing body for university athletics, Canadian Interuniversity Sport
(CIS). The other three regional associations coordinating university-level sports in Canada are Ontario University Athletics
(OUA), Atlantic University Sport
(AUS), and the Canada West Universities Athletic Association
The RSEQ was initially known as the Quebec Universities Athletic Association (QUAA) when it was founded in 1971 with the reformulations of three university athletic associations spanning the universities of Ontario
and Quebec. After the merger between the university, collegiate and high school governing bodies in 1989, the amalgamated association was named to the QSSF and then renamed RSEQ in November 2010.
