  • They are currently in beta mode, meaning that they should not be relied upon yet as a source of truth and could change frequently. Please notify CPS if you come across values that do not make sense.
  • They are not based on catalogue values but on current dealer and auction listings. The reason for this is that catalogues tend to over-value stamps.

About Stamp

The Canada Post Community Foundation recently awarded $1.35 million in funding to grassroots and community-based child and youth organizations across the country.

Since 2007, the Foundation has provided more than $9 million in assistance to libraries, breakfast programs, anti-bullying initiatives, Kids Help Phone, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada, Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada, sports clubs and others. The Foundation receives hundreds of requests from groups that deal with physical, emotional, educational and recreational needs of children and youth, and grants funding based on criteria set by the Foundation’s board.

In addition to a variety of fundraising activities by Canada Post employees, much of the money comes directly from the generous donations of customers and from the extra dollar paid on the purchase of the annual Foundation stamp booklet.

The 2014 Canada Post Community Foundation campaign runs from September 29 to October 26.
