- 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.

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. Located in central Quebec, the 177 km Jacques-Cartier River flows through two distinct natural areas: an upper section on Jacques-Cartier Provincial Park and a lower one compromising the southern edge of the Laurentian Shield and the St. Lawrence Lowlands. Besides its natural beauty, historically it served as a travel and trade route for the Montagnais Indians, for early Jesuit missionaries and fur traders and as an important settlement area in early Quebec. 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.
