About Stamp

This set of four commemorative stamps is the second in a series marking the 50th anniversary of Canada's contribution to the Allied war effort during the Second World War. Canada Post Corporation recognizes the hardships endured by Canadian individuals and families who remained on the Home Front. The many communal activities, organizations and programs that were created boosted morale and provided assistance to troops, prisoners of war and their families. Canada's important contribution in food production helped feed the Allied nations. And through research, inventions and innovations, Canadian scientists and medical doctors made significant technological developments, which helped to win the war. Pierre-Yves Pelletier designed these stamps with the help of illustrations by fellow Montrealer, Jean-Pierre Armanville. The stamps depict realistic scenes, focusing on the effects of war on people.
