Canada Post’s 2014 stamp program will demonstrate the diverse combination of achievement, progress, culture and tragedy that helps define Canada.
In a new series to be issued in July, country music stars Tommy Hunter, k.d. lang, Renée Martel, Hank Snow and Shania Twain will appear
on stamps for the first time. Distinguished athletes – curler Sandra
Schmirler, figure skater Barbara Ann Scott and freestyle-skiing pioneer
Sarah Burke – will be featured in February in a set of stamps
commemorating Canadian Women Winter Athletes.
“These stamp collections visually narrate some of our country’s
defining moments – from our darkest days to those of immense pride, the
2014 program offers us some incredible stories to remember,” says the
Honourable Lisa Raitt, Minister of Transport and responsible for Canada
“Collectively we continue to capture moments that will long live
through our stamp collection. And we encourage everyone to take note of
these stories as they truly mark who we are as Canadians,” says Deepak
Chopra, President and CEO of Canada Post.
