- 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.

Joining in the celebrations to mark Canada's 125th birthday, Canada Post Corporation is issuing a souvenir sheet of 12 stamps on June 29 depicting works of art by Canadian painters. To highlight this special historic occasion, these are the first diamond-shaped stamps to be issued by the Corporation. The theme of the stamps issued on this historic anniversary can be found in our national anthem: "Our home and native land/Terre de nos aïeux." Each painting depicts a "people place" locality associated with its province or territory in an upbeat atmosphere. Vancouver native E.J. Hughes is a realist landscape artist. "Christie Passage, Hurst Island, B.C." is a typical example of his renderings of nature coastal scenes of his native province. With this historic stamp issue, Canada Post Corporation is proud to participate in this nation's most important anniversary since our Centennial in 1967.
Designed by Pierre-Yves Pelletier.
Edward John Hughes, "Christie Passage, Hurst Island, B.C.", 1962 National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa, Ontario
