Diurnal Geometrid Moth from Canada

Subject: What’s this bug?
Location: New Brunswick, Canada

I found this bug in my backyard and I was wondering what species it is? It is fairly common flying around and feeding on the lilac bush. I have searched several bug databases and I am unable to find the name of it. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you
