A new Toronto sign popped this week along the city’s waterfront.

Located along the rocks of Humber Bay Shores, the sign is made entirely from driftwood and says TOStrong, with a peace sign situated inside the first “O.”

So while you can head down to Nathan Phillips Square any day of the year to get a selfie in front of Toronto’s most famous sign, we suggest you switch it up this week and show this new masterpiece some love.

Last summer, another Toronto sign made out of recovered driftwood was built in Humber Bay Park.

The sign, which took five days to complete, was created by local artists and best friends, Thelia Sanders-Shelton and Julie Ryan.

While it’s unclear if Sanders-Shelton and Ryan are responsible for the new TOStrong sign, it’s definitely a greatly appreciated addition to the waterfront.
