INFC created guidelines for sign design, content and installation for projects funded by the GTF.
Canada takes a flexible, common sense approach to signs. Project managers can choose the right type, size and nature of signage based on their specific project(s).
The use and size of physical signs should be based on the project’s scope and size, duration and cost. In general, a sign for a project funded by the GTF is required:
- when the federal contribution is over $100,000;
- where there is visible construction; and
- where an installed sign is visible to the public.
In some cases, an interior sign placed in a lobby or a sign installed in a community gathering place may be a good alternative to an outdoor sign.
In some cases, you can use a digital sign (either on your project’s website or in social media) to recognize your project. You can also use digital signs with physical signs if you wish.
