Everyone’s been loving the brand new Toronto sign that’s found a home in Nathan Phillips Square for the PanAm/ParaPanAm Games. It’s popped up all over social media, with tourists and city folk alike posing next to it for a photo or two.
On Sunday, the City announced the sign will remain in the city even after the games are over, as it was previously rumoured that it would be taken down after sporting event. Instead, it will be moved around the city as part of Toronto’s PanAm legacy.

A spokesperson for the games said the idea to keep the sign sparked from the success of similar instalments in other PanAm cities, like the Guadalajara sign. “It became an iconic point,” he said.
The 3D light-up sign will remain where it is in front of City Hall for the remainder of the year, and then will be on its way around the city’s neighbourhoods.
