Canadian Language Museum
The Canadian Language Museum was established in 2011 to promote an appreciation of all of the languages spoken in Canada and of their role in the development of this nation. Few countries can match Canada’s rich and varied language heritage, which includes Indigenous languages from coast to coast, the official languages of French and English and their regional dialects, and the many languages brought to this country by more recent immigrants. The Canadian Language Museum encourages dialogue on language issues that are central to the future of Canadian society, such as bilingualism, multilingualism, and language endangerment, preservation and revitalization. The Canadian Language Museum has created travelling exhibits about Canadian English, the Inuit language, French in Canada, the Cree language, the Tapestry of languages in Canada, and 150 years of language use on signs in Toronto.

Alphabet, Google, and Sidewalk Labs Start Their City-Building Venture in Toronto | WIRED
In this distinctly "data is deity" Silicon Valley way, Alphabet joins the grand tradition of master-planned cities, places built from near-nothing with big social goals in mind. Historically, these have not worked out.
