About Stamp

Found on the west shore of Mahone Bay along Nova Scotia’s South Shore, the town of Mahone Bay was originally home to the Mi’kmaq people, which they called Mushamush. Known for its shipbuilding history, visitors flock there to find three heritage churches that form part of the seaside area’s eye-catching scenery.

About Stamp Series

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.
