Just in time for Canada 150 celebrations, Ottawa now has its very own ‘Toronto Sign’.
The sign arrived in the city earlier today and will be set up in Ottawa’s ByWard Market as the focal point of Inspiration Village, a summer-long hub for all things Ottawa and Canada 150 this summer.
The success of the Toronto sign, originally created for the Pan Am Games, has gone on to see it become a must-take selfie spot in the city for tourists and locals alike, as well as serving as a symbol of Toronto around the world.
In fact, it’s own update earlier this year caused a new wave of people to head down for some Insta-worthy shots.
Here’s to hoping the Ottawa sign has the same effect on everyone hitting the nation’s capital this summer!
Check out some photos of the sign being set up below:
