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.
Auyuittuq National Park, Nunavut
Protecting an outstanding representative example of the Northern Davis Natural Region, Auyuittuq National Park is a spectacular arctic wilderness landscape spanning 19,707 sq. km just north of the Arctic Circle along the east coast of Baffin Island. Jagged mountain peaks, deep U-shaped valleys, steep-walled ocean cliffs and long fjords make for splendid alpine glacial scenery, and mountains rising 2,134 m are still actively shaped by the glaciers of the Penny Ice Cap.
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.
