About Stamp

When disaster strikes, Canada’s emergency responders are ready to help at a moment’s notice. Thanks to their quick and courageous actions, Canada is one of the safest countries in the world. This stamp, designed by William Lam and illustrated by Shiro Nishiguchi, recognizes the life-saving work of these dedicated women and men. This design features a single resolute figure in the foreground with a scene representing the teamwork, cooperation and determination required to be among Canada’s emergency responders.

Visit Canada’s magnificent coastlines, mountains, forests and waterways and you’ll see why they attract so many outdoor enthusiasts. But changing weather, challenging terrain and human error can sometimes spell disaster. When that happens, Canada’s search and rescue technicians are there to help, trained extensively in survival, first aid, parachuting, diving and mountain climbing. Whether from the Canadian Coast Guard, Canadian Armed Forces, Parks Canada or a provincial, territorial or volunteer organization, these elite experts do their best to find and save those who are lost, hurt or stranded.
