Luc Tousignant (born July 4, 1958, in Trois-Rivièresmarker, Quebecmarker) is a former quarterback in the Canadian Football League and Olympic handball player.

He competed in the 1976 Summer Olympics with the Canadian handball team, which finished eleventh in the Olympic tournament. He played three matches.

Tousignant attended Fairmont State University from 1978 to 1981, and played in the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. He was a second-team All-America honouree, the WVIAC's offensive player of the year, and a first-team all-league selection in 1981, when he led the Falcons to the conference title, a 9-2 overall record, and a berth in the NAIA Playoffs. His 4,737 passing yards and 30 career touchdown passes were school records which stood for 14 years.

He was drafted in the 1982 NFL Draft by the NFL's Buffalo Bills in the eighth round, 218th overall.

Tousignant's only professional season was the 1982 CFL season with the Montreal Concordes (which is part of the Montreal Alouettes franchise history.) He played in all of their 16 games, starting five of them. He completed only 75 of his 174 passes, for 989 yards, and 11 interceptions. He rushed for 200 yards. The Concordes had a two win and 14 loss season.

He is notable for not only being a Canadian starting at quarterback for a CFL team, which is rare, but he is the only French Canadian ever to start at quarterback, which he did while playing for the only CFL team based in Quebec.

In 2008, the Fairmont State University Athletic Association named him to their Athletic Hall of Fame.
