About Stamp

Read all about it! The latest Canada Post Community Foundation semi-postal fundraising stamp issue highlights the importance of literacy and imagination in the lives of children. The stamp is now being released in the spring to accommodate the addition of the annual Truth and Reconciliation stamp issue to the program in September and ensure both stamp issues – and the important stories they tell – get the time, attention and respect they deserve.

Designed by John Belisle Creative and illustrated by John Belisle, the stamp depicts a diverse group of animals reading a story together. The “read me a story” theme reminds us of the ways that stories and storytelling enhance the lives of children and youth, as well as of the creativity and curiosity that stories inspire.

A $1 surcharge from the sale of each booklet of 10 stamps, or an extra 10 cents from the sale of each Official First Day Cover, goes directly to the Foundation to help fund local and national non‑profit groups that serve the needs of children and youth. Since 2012, the Canada Post Community Foundation has supported more than 1,100 community organizations that bring positive change to Canadian children.
