Canadian Stamps

Canadian Stamps

What Canadian doesn't love the sweet taste of a good, Canadian postage stamp? It reminds us all of the things that make this country great: tradition, communication, and Canada Post. No, silly, that's not like a "Facebook post" that Justin Trudeau makes. Canada Post is that group of great men and women who walk our mail across the country, rain or shine! You might be too young to remember, but before "electronic mail" there was just real, physical mail on paper (or sometimes in tiny boxes). Someone has to deliver that mail!

Canadians love to send mail. Don't believe me? Just check out the exquisite artistry of our stamp designs. In a factory in southern New Brunswick, workers carefully paint each stamp individually, breathing love and life into scenes of patriotism and valour. Each stamp is a perfect work of art. That's why Canadians open every letter with care. You don't need to remind us to frame our envelopes!

Every Friday, Canadians get together for stamp viewing parties. We'll drink a beer—or maybe three—and compare and contrast the postage on the letters we've received that week. The stamps are then weighed, ranked, and checked for consistency. (No cheating!) The winner gets to take home the whole lot.

When you buy a postage stamp from Canada Post, you're entering into a sacred contract with our nation. If you ever forget to send something by mail, don't worry. Someone from Canada Post will be knocking at your door soon, reminding you that mail is what makes us, well, Canadian!
