About Stamp

OLD PORT OF MONTRÉAL
Located between the St. Lawrence River and the city-centre, Old Montréal and the Old Port showcase the area's rich history. Much of the past is visible today, from the place the city was founded in 1642, to the French colony's winding paths, lovely 18th and 19th century architecture and Canada's first skyscrapers.

CANADA ON DISPLAY
This stamp was designed by Bradbury Design of Regina, with Catharine Bradbury as design principal and Karin Uusikorpi as associate designer. The challenge of this stamp lay in promoting the diversity and beauty of Canadian tourist attractions in an appealing and effective manner. Aimed at American and international communities, the stamp showcases the talents of the photographer, who set out to capture the essence of this attraction.

Creators

Designed by Catharine Bradbury.
