About Stamp

As our best winter athletes prepare to compete in 2018, Canada Post issued this stamp to celebrate the achievement of Canadian superstars who topped the podium.

Sonja Gaudet is the world’s most decorated wheelchair curler, with three Paralympic gold medals and three World Wheelchair Curling Championships. A tireless advocate for accessibility, she is an ambassador with the Rick Hansen Foundation and the Paralympic Committee.

In depicting this Canadian woman powerhouse in winter sports, Subplot's design team set out to create a look that, according to creative director Roy White, "would celebrate the joy, endurance and dedication that has gone into her illustrious achievements over her career." This stamp features a duotone portrait of the athlete in a moment of celebration, as well as a full-colour, freeze-frame action shot representing a defining moment in her career.
