About Stamp

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.

The Forks, Manitoba
The Forks, at the historic junction of the Assiniboine and Red rivers in downtown Winnipeg, has been a site of activity for many centuries. It served as an Aboriginal meeting place and fishing camp, then as a trading centre and port, and finally as a railway and immigration centre. Today, it's the site of more than a hundred annual events, festivals, and community celebrations. Countless year-round activities draw millions of visitors each year.

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.
