About Stamp
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. A native of the Northwest Territories, Agnes Nanogak is renowned for her interpretations of aboriginal myths and legends. Her "Playing on an igloo" combines her storytelling talents with her abilities as a graphic artist. With this historic stamp issue, Canada Post Corporation is proud to participate in this nation's most important anniversary since our Centennial in 1967.
