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.
Canada is one of the safest countries in the world due in large part to the civilian and sworn members of our police forces, who perform critical – and often dangerous – work with compassion, integrity and professionalism. Their many duties include providing emergency assistance in cases of crime, natural and human-caused disasters, accidents and other lifethreatening situations. Through community patrols, security services, investigations and other means, police officers work tirelessly to protect Canadians and visitors from harm. Internationally respected for their expertise, our police officers are also deployed to countries around the world to assist in times of crisis.
