Toronto is the latest recipient of a 3D Canada 150 sign.

The new three-dimensional sign is located at the CN Tower and celebrates the 150th anniversary of Confederation.

According to Canadian Heritage, another 18 signs will be installed in provincial and territorial capitals and a number of iconic tourist destinations, “creating vibrant gathering spaces across the country for Canadians and tourists alike to celebrate this special moment in Canada’s history.”

The first sign went up in Calgary earlier in May, and all signs are expected to be in place by June 21.

The majority of the 3D Canada 150 signs will measure 1.82 m (6 feet) by 10.97 m (36 feet), and weigh 2722 kg (6,000 lbs.). These signs will be illuminated with different colours at night.

The 3D Canada 150 signs will be installed in the following communities: Victoria, Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Banff, Regina, Winnipeg, Whitehorse, Yellowknife, Iqaluit, Toronto, Niagara Falls, Ottawa, Montréal, Québec City, Fredericton, Halifax, Charlottetown and St. John’s. They will be on display until at least the end of 2017.

All signs will be installed by the beginning of the Celebrate Canada period, which starts on June 21.
