The explorers of New France introduced Europeans to the Canadians Indians, outlined the geography of Central Canada and found the way west. Born in France about 1592, Brûlé arrived at Quebec in 1608. In 1610 Samuel de Champlain sent him to live with the Huron and to learn their language. The adventurous Brûlé was more than an interpreter, though. He became the first European to shoot the Lachine rapids and to set eyes on Lakes Huron, Ontario, Superior and Erie. Artist Frederick Hagan of Newmarket, Ontario, created the images for these stamps. The paintings project the power of strong colour to evoke the moods of changing seasons and landscape. Forest, lake, river and hilltops combine with elements of cartography and the heraldry of flags to suggest the activities and experiences of the early explorers of Central Canada. J.F. Britton of Oakville, Ontario, prepared the typography for the stamp designs.
Designed by Frederick Hagan.
