About Stamp

"For the 150th year since Confederation, Canada Post expanded its storytelling role by issuing 10 stamps – in the shape of a maple leaf for the first time in their history."

Together we rise

The Canada 150 issue celebrates 10 of our country’s most transformative moments. These special stamps recreate the events that united us, moved us forward and made us proud to be Canadian. Casting our eyes back on the past 50 years since our centennial in 1967, Canada Post selected 10 truly iconic milestones and accomplishments from a wealth of social progress, innovation and other significant achievements that have positioned us as a vibrant and successful nation on the world stage.

There is no question that we Canadians have so much to celebrate for Canada 150. We are a model of tolerance and diversity to the world - a fact reflected in some of the 10 chosen topics. We showed ourselves to be a nation poised for progress during our 100th anniversary, and over the past five decades, we have proved ourselves as builders, creators and inventors, constantly meeting the challenge to be the very best. We have succeeded and achieved greatness in science, sports, leadership and much more. That excellence, that achievement, is an integral part of this stamp issue.

We want to share this Canada 150 celebration with you - not just through these 10 magnificent maple leaf-shaped stamps - but through the stories behind them, the unveilings where we came together with Canadians across this land - and together we rose, lumps in our collective throats, so proud of what we’ve accomplished and empowered to take on the challenges of the future.

The Nunavut (ᓄᓇᕗᑦ) Stamp

"The story of a vast territory – Canada’s newest. Created in 1999, Nunavut was the result of the largest Aboriginal land claims agreement in Canadian history."

On April 1, 1999, the creation of Canada’s newest territory, Nunavut, was hailed with fanfare including fireworks and traditional Inuit games and dances. The new addition to Canada’s political map – the first major change since Newfoundland and Labrador joined Confederation in 1949 – was the result of the largest Aboriginal land claims agreement in Canadian history, which divided the Northwest Territories in two. Decades in the making, Nunavut, meaning “our land” in Inuktitut, is home to mostly Inuit – Indigenous peoples who have occupied the vast Arctic Archipelago part of the region for some 4,000 years.

Nunavut enjoys one of Canada’s fastest-growing populations – and one of its youngest – placing the territory at the forefront of Canada’s future. The territory covers almost one fifth of the country, encompassing much of the vast Arctic, and includes the northernmost inhabited place in the world: Alert. Its rich wildlife and natural resources promise a prosperous future, with conservation and development guided responsibly by local needs and knowledge.

This stamp, celebrating Canada’s newest territory and the people who call it home, was unveiled May 30 at the Legislative Assembly of Nunavut in Iqaluit. Distinguished guests, including representatives from the Government of Nunavut, other honoured individuals, and senior executives from Canada Post paid tribute to a Nunavut that supports Inuit values, strengthens the use of the Inuit language and engages with circumpolar neighbours.
