Diversity In The City

This wonderful sign marks the entrance to the "Native Child & Family Services Of Toronto" building on College St. This agency provides multi-faceted social & culture based services for aboriginal children and families and is housed in a fabulous building which I plan on touring during Doors Open Toronto at the end of the month. I showed you the rear entrance here. I love the graphics of this sign and of course the colours! You can also see, off to the right, part of one of the banners that run along the front of the building, each with appropriate symbols.

That is a beautiful sign; I love the bright red color and the feathers hanging down. I like how the native family is juxtaposed in front of the cityscape.

Yup, nice sign, the one on the back of the building also.

Great sign - colourful and easy to understand.

Wonderful :)

It is a beautiful sign but more importantly, it's a beautiful place because it houses a mission of providing assistance to people in need.

You might check out Ocala DP today...there's a photo of a bike stand and you are mentioned! :-)

Great sign, hope the inside is as imaginative as the entrance.

I can't wait for the Doors Open. This looks like a really cool place. I love the colors of the sign and the feathers. Reminds me a bit of the state flag of Oklahoma, my home and native land. :)

A beautiful sign symbolising so many caring services! It certainly has been designed with sensitive ideas!

The red really pops out. I have been plotting my tour during Doors Open - so many sites and only 10 hours!

No worries - I deleted your first link, a bit late as I had a meeting that lasted way longer than I expected!

I'm pretty sure this beautiful sign makes all the Natives feel very wellcome. :)

The sign has caught my interest to see what's behind the doors.

Great sign representative of the services provided there, Pat.

Now this is interesting Pat, you call your Native Americans aboriginals also, for some reason I thought that was unique to Australia?

JM said...

I also love the graphics of the sign but I am somehow surprised Native people have different services, I had no idea.

Carola said...

Indeed a wonderful sign and entrance.

What a wonderful agency serving these special families. It seems like our government wants to do away with services for women and children which is so upsetting to me. I love the logo. It is beautiful. genie
