IIDEX Canada, the country's premier architecture and design event, gets started this Thursday in Toronto. The two-day expo and conference is expected to draw more than 15,000 attendees.

Our giveaway coincides with several efforts by Moleskine to take over the fine country of Canada. The company will distribute the special edition sketchbooks at select IIDEX Canada events on Thursday and Friday in Toronto. It's also teaming up with the office furniture company Tayco to offer "sketching stations" throughout the convention center, where attendees can produce drawings that stem from their experiences at the show.
There's more! IIDEX mailed Moleskine sketchbooks to leading Canadian architects and designers and invited them to create illustrations "based on their inspirations and design philosophy." The "Canada Sketches with Moleskine" exhibition will be on view at IIDEX in the International Pavilion, designed by Milan- and Toronto-based architects Enrico Cleva and Sara Viarengo. You can also check out the sketches in the Moleskine Flickr gallery.
So get in on the action! Enter our super-awesome caption contest!
