About Stamp

February's Millenium souvenir sheets continue the tribute to the wide range of Canadian people, events and institutions that have helped shape our nation. This third release - the second last in the series - presents such individuals as philosopher Northrop Frye and "Plouffe Family" author Roger Lemelin and celebrates the spirit and vision of Canadian philanthropy. Aboriginal contributions to peace, healing and sport are featured, as well as Canada's proud heritage in the theatre and popular literature.

The estate of farm equipment manufacturer Hart Massey was established as the Massey Foundation in 1918. It has funded numerous philanthropic endeavours across Canada, from building facilities such as Hart House at University of Toronto to establishing a national fine crafts collection.
