Every community has them; they’re the people, places, events and local wonders you can’t find anywhere else that make us smile and feel a bit more proud about where we live.

Today, as part of our SunnySide initiative, Metro is calling on Torontonians to help us celebrate what makes living in our city so special: The people, places, events, architecture — you name it — that seem to take those worries away.

We want you to submit the names of the people and things that set Toronto apart.

Submit your suggestions on who and what deserve recognition, and we will share their inspiring stories with Metro’s 1.1 million daily readers across Canada.

So get writing, emailing and tweeting your SunnySide suggestions by email, by commenting on this story, or on Twitter to @metrotoronto.

We will highlight the top five people and “things” and give them the recognition you think they deserve.

It’s time for you to tell the rest of Canada — and your neighbours down the street — what makes Toronto so unique and a great place to live.
