Canada is blessed with a bounty of natural diversity; from the glacial glory in the farthest reaches of the north, to the fruitful soil of the south, to the life-giving waterways located in between. For centuries, Canadians have embraced this bounty; building upon nature's foundations. The result is countless attractions that draw millions of visitors to various parts of the country each year.
Located in the northeast section of Ontario's Niagara Peninsula, the town of Niagara-on-the-Lake offers visitors a splendid historical look into earlier times. Bombarded during the War of 1812 and burned to the ground by withdrawing American troops, the town has since been meticulously rebuilt with neo-classic and Regency architecture. Today, visitors enjoy the sights of majestic homes, historical buildings, and the Shaw Festival - featuring works by playwright George Bernard Shaw.
About the Stamp
This stamp featured in the Tourist Attractions set was designed by Bradbury Design of Regina, and a total of nine photographers supplied images capturing the essence of each attraction. Award-winning design principal Catharine Bradbury and associate designer Jennifer Hood saw this project as a means of promoting the beauty and diversity of Canadian tourist attractions to American and international communities.
