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.

Barkerville, British Columbia
In 1862, William (Billy) Barker struck gold at the site now known as Barkerville. After the rush, the miners departed, but Barkerville remained a supply centre. Today, the restored gold-rush town in BC's interior is a heritage site boasting more than a hundred historical buildings, two museums, and a visitor centre. Every summer, more than 100,000 visitors take a unique look back as the town puts on a stage show, offers stagecoach rides, and sees its streets filled with people in period costume.

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.
