- 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.

Canada Post Corporation's on-going tribute to heroic achievements and sacrifices of Canadians during World War II continues with a set of four stamps marking 1941, the first year of "Total War". The stamps will be issued on November 8, to complement Remembrance Day ceremonies on the 11th. Due the Depression of the 1930's, this country's military armaments were in a sorry state at the outbreak of the war. And it wasn't until the Nazi offensive of 1940 that things began to improve. C.D. Howe, the Minister of Munitions and Supply was given the power to mobilize Canadian industry totally behind the war effort. Canadian workers outdid themselves, with such increased productivity that much of it went to Allied forces. Women entered the work force in ever-increasing numbers as the men went to war. And the labour movement improved its position as both pay levels and benefits increased.
Designed by Pierre-Yves Pelletier.
