All the pictures displayed in our Gallery were shot in Toronto or elsewhere in Ontario. They illustrate some of the institutions (e.g., stores, churches, associations, etc.) or signs of Ontario’s ethno-linguistic communities where these communities’ languages come into contact with one another or with English. The pictures were taken by CRLCC members.
