This stamp has "Pisew Falls Provincial Park (MB)" micro-printed above the waterfall.
Enjoy Canada’s scenic beauty with this stamp featuring Manitoba’s Pisew Falls.
Located in a remote wilderness area some 700 kilometres north of Winnipeg, Pisew Falls is the second-highest waterfall in Manitoba. The falls derives its name from the Cree word for “lynx,” a reference to its hissing waters that are said to resemble the sound of the northern wild cat.
This stamp is one of nine definitive stamps from the first issue in a multi-year series featuring must-see Canadian destinations.
There are so many beautiful places to see across Canada, it’s a constant temptation to pack your bags, hit the road and explore this fabulous country from one end to the other. If that’s not practical, this new definitive stamp series – From Far and Wide – promises to satisfy even the most restless of armchair travelers and inspire all of us to see more of this land first-hand.
According to stamp designer Stéphane Huot, it’s a privilege to work on a stamp series over an extended period of time. He adds, “The challenge is to establish a design platform that can be repeated, but that can also evolve. In the ‘From Far and Wide’ series, the evolution is the result of the images chosen for the background of the souvenir sheet and a strong and distinctive color scheme that establishes the tone for the series.
