Shania Twain Joins Canada's Country Legends On A Postage Stamp

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 Post.

“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.
