WHERE: Harbourfront Centre

WHEN: Thursday, June 20

WHAT: A decade after the federal government first announced the project, a pair of new public spaces have finally arrived at Harbourfront Centre, on a site formerly used as a parking lot. Canada Square (top) and Ontario Square (bottom), as the two adjacent areas are known, were built with help from Waterfront Ontario, using a mix of provincial and federal money. Ontario Square had its official opening on June 23, and Canada Square will open on Canada Day. There’s already a photo exhibition there for passersby to check out.
