What is City Mosaic?

City Mosaic is an urban adventure for those looking for an out-of-the-ordinary experience. Throughout the month of July, City Mosaic takes you on a real-world guided expedition across GTA via an app on your smartphone. You can safely explore, connect, and enjoy your community outdoors by yourself, or with members of your household (or one other household if you live alone).

During the pandemic, many may be feeling the stress from staying at home, being in front of the computer, being isolated and feeling uncertain about the future. Through City Mosaic, we hope to bring you a fun and safe activity through which you can connect online with your friends in the midst of coping with all the challenges that the pandemic has brought.

Explore the neighbourhood while maintaining proper safety measures and following the Provincial COVID-19 Public Health Guidelines.
