About Stamp

Every year, millions of tourists from home and abroad visit areas across Canada to see our nation's natural wonders and man-made attractions. Canada Post is proud to showcase 10 such attractions in a set of 10 self-adhesive stamps available in two booklets of five. The five U.S. rate ($0.65) stamps feature Wilberforce Falls, Inside Passage, RCMP Depot Division, Casa Loma, and Gatineau Park, while the five international rate ($1.25) stamps feature Dragon Boat Racing, Polar Bear Watching, Niagara Falls, Magdalen Islands, and Province House in Charlottetown. Issued on June 12, 2003, this stamp set invites the curious to learn a little more about Canada's history, heritage, geology and culture.

Casa Loma ($0.65)
Perched atop a hill in Toronto, the colossal Casa Loma was built by Canadian financier Sir Henry Pellatt between 1911 and 1914. It boasts a great hall with a 20 metre (70-foot) oak-beamed ceiling and 10 metre (40-foot) window case; a conservatory; grandiose bedroom suites panelled in mahogany and walnut; horse stables with Spanish floor tiles; and beautiful gardens during the months of May to October. Self-guided tours in a number of languages are available year-round.

About the Stamp's Design
This stamp was designed by Catharine Bradbury (design principal) and Karin Uusikorpi (associate designer) of Bradbury Branding and Design Inc. in Regina. The idea behind the design, says Catharine, "was to emphasize the incredible beauty and diversity of Canadian tourist attractions to the American and international audiences." Catharine and Karin found that "because of the huge scope of these audiences, the challenge was to ensure the stamp had a specific Canadian sensibility while maintaining a universal appeal." Both designers are pleased with the result and feel that the stamp "captures all that is unique about Canada and effectively promote the wonder of our country to the world."


Designed by Catharine Bradbury. Based on a photograph by Michael Rafelson.
