The main dialect of Mi'kmaq is the one spoken in Nova Scotia. It uses the Francis-Smith orthography. It is also the one used by the Mi'kmaq Grand Council. The second important dialect is the Listuguj dialect spoken by the Mi'kmaq people of Quebec.

Listuguj[edit]

The Listuguj dialect, also called Restigouche, is from the Gaspé Peninsula in Eastern Quebec. It uses the orthography of the same name (see Chapter 3 for more details).
