IMAGE FILES: Handbook of Recommended Information Sign Symbols for Canada (2008)

The electronic vector image files of the Handbook of Recommended Information Sign Symbols for Canada (2008) are intended to assist jurisdictions with the proper reproduction of the sign symbols presented in the document of the same name. The files are provided in EPS format in order to maintain their resolution if resizing is required.  

The image files are organized into the 19 facility type groups represented in Part 2 of the Handbook: General Services; Emergency Services; Accommodation; Campground Services; Disabled Services; Domestic Animal Facilities/Services; Public Facilities/Services; Roadside Assistance; Transportation and Station Services; Cultural Attractions; Nature Attractions; Structures; Tourist Attractions; Air Recreation; Entertainment; Land Recreation; Water Recreation; Winter Recreation; and Miscellaneous.  The sign symbol images for each group are accompanied by a PDF overview listing.  

Practitioners are strongly encouraged to use the image files in consultation with the Handbook, which contains important information on general application and guidelines, facility eligibility, and multiple activity/facility signing for proper sign symbol use.
