About Stamp

On August 20, 1991, five se-tenant stamps will be issued in a Stamp Pack of 10 to recognize the importance of five great Canadian rivers. This is the first in a series to follow. The Canadian Heritage Rivers System (CHRS) was established on January 18, 1984, by the parks agencies of federal, provincial and territorial governments to give national recognition to the important rivers of Canada and to conserve and interpret the best examples of this heritage. These stamps represent just five of the 19 rivers spanning 4,114 kilometers currently included in the CHRS. The longest river in Alberta, the Athabasca winds 1538 km from its source in the Columbia Icefields of Jasper National Park, along the Continental Divide and through the Rocky Mountains, across the Interior Plains and along the Canadian Shield, before emptying into Lake Athabasca on the border of Wood Buffalo National Park. The stamps were designed by Eskind Waddell. Stamp packs sold through the National Philatelic Centre and philatelic centres will be available with unglued covers white those at regular postal outlets will be in the normal Stamp Pack format.
