* Notes about these prices:
  • They are currently in beta mode, meaning that they should not be relied upon yet as a source of truth and could change frequently. Please notify CPS if you come across values that do not make sense.
  • They are not based on catalogue values but on current dealer and auction listings. The reason for this is that catalogues tend to over-value stamps.
  • They are average prices and might not be fully accurate. The actual value of your stamp may be slightly above or below the listed value, depending on the overall condition of your stamp.

About Stamp

Canada Post Corporation is honouring Montreal's Bonsecours Market with the third stamp in a series celebrating Canada's architectural heritage. Designed by Montreal architect William Footner and constructed from 1842-45, the building has served as a market, town hall and, for a brief period after 1849, as the Parliament House of the Province of Canada. Its symmetrical, Neo-Classical style exemplifies the shape and form of many public buildings in the mid-19th century. This new $5.00 high-value definitive stamp is issued in conjunction with the XVIIth Congress of the International Union of Architects in Montreal. Montreal designed Raymond Bellemare created this Architecture stamp in the same tradition as the other two in the series. Beginning with a linear design of the building, Bellemare refined the image using computer graphics.
