About Stamp

March's series of four Millennium Souvenir Sheets features among other, Bell Canada, Bombardier, the Canadian Space Program and McCain Foods. These bold 112 x 108 mm souvenir sheets frame four 36 x 48 mm stamps in thematic groupings that celebrate Canadian giants in fields as diverse as engineering, commerce and innovation.

Sir Charles Saunders established Canada's reputation as a leading producer of quality wheat by developing a new strain called Marquis, which matured early, produced a high yield and had superior milling and baking qualities.
