About Stamp
Canada Post Corporation is proud to support CANADA 92, World Philatelic Youth Exhibition organized by the Royal Philatelic Society of Canada, with the participation of the Fédération québécoise de philatélie and under the patronage of the Fédération Internationale de Philatélie. The event is being held at the Palais de Congrès in Montreal from March 25-29, aiding in the celebrations surrounding the 350th anniversary of the founding of the city. On opening day, four commemorative stamps and a companion souvenir sheet will be issued depicting the exhibition's theme: Exploration and Discovery. Two 42-cent se tenant stamps will focus on the 350th anniversary of the founding of Montreal, while a 48-cent will honour explorer Jacques Cartier and a 84-cent value will pay tribute to Christopher Columbus on the 500th anniversary of his discovery of America. The international rate stamp commemorates the first Atlantic crossing of Columbus in 1492. His initial voyage led to the first encounter between European and Amerindian civilizations, with the eventual realization that this new continent would change the basic concept of the world forever.
