Ministry of Francophone Affairs - Notre Place - Franco Ontarian Monument

Location: Toronto, ON

Designer/Architect: Franco-Ontarian Community Committee

Duration: Jan 2018 - Dec 2018

Scope: Soheil Mosun Limited was commissioned to fabricate and install the Franco Ontarian monument at Queens Park known as "Notre Place". Located at the North West corner of College Street and University Avenue, this unique monument design was confirmed through a consultation process led by an advisory committee drawn from the Franco Ontarian Community.

Highlights: This monument is comprised of a series of (15) mirror polished and bead blasted patterned staves made of alloy 316 stainless steel rectangular tubing. Each stave is approximately 12' in height and the monument includes a mirror polished (with LED) diffused acrylic lens lit sign describing the monument and its meaning with an embedded stainless steel name plate in the seating area entrance. On the opposite side of each stave are 3M vinyl strips with varied colours honouring the Franco-Ontarian community, which dates back more than 400 years.
