Canada 150

MomenTo en Francais MomenTO

In celebration of Canada 150, MomenTO highlights people, places and events from 1867 to 2017 that are significant to the history of Canada and Toronto. MomenTO engages community partners to present a diverse set of events, exhibits, and installations from May to December of 2017. At the same time, the MomenTO Pop-up Museum takes Canada's 150th anniversary city-wide, featuring artifacts from the City's historical collections that help tell remarkable stories from Toronto and Canada's past.

Canada 150 Collection

As a legacy project for the City's Canada 150 celebrations, the MomenTO Pop-Up Museum gathered objects from each of its destinations to be contributed to the City of Toronto’s historical collection as a Canada 150 time capsule. View the collection on Flickr.

Exhibit: Innovation Circa 1867

Colborne Lodge presents a new exhibit that explores emerging Canadian inventions and the mindset of the Confederation generation. Innovation Circa 1867 features the designs, papers, books and tools of John G. Howard, one of Toronto's most important early city builders.
