* Notes about these prices:
- 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 PSG 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.
- They are average prices and might not be fully accurate. The actual value of your stamp may be slightly above or below the listed value, depending on the overall condition of your stamp.
Canada's extensive coasts and vast maze of rivers and lakes encouraged the development of many different types of boats by Native People. These craft provided mobility where it was otherwise practically impossible to travel. Chipewyan Indians built narrow, flat-bottomed canoes with low, flaring sides for hunting caribou and for traveling. Both stern and bow were partly decked, preventing water from entering the craft. The Chipewyans used both birch and spruce bark as sheathing. Graphic designer Louis-André Rivard and illustrator Bernard Leduc, both of Montreal, together designed these four stamps. They picture the Native craft as first seen by the Europeans. The environments where each boat would characteristically be found form a backdrop for the small craft depicted.
Designed by Louis-André Rivard.
