About Stamp

January's series of four Millennium souvenir sheets features, among others, Lester B. Pearson, Terry Fox and CIDA. These bold 112-by-108 mm souvenir sheets frame four 36-by-48 mm stamps in thematic groupings that celebrate Canadian giants in fields as diverse as medicine, finance, peacekeeping and international development.

Although his illness forced him to give up his Marathon of Hope, the sprit of one of Canada's most courageous young men lives on in the annual Terry Fox Run, which has earned more than $200 million for cancer research.
