The Canada Post stamp program

We have a dedicated Stamp Advisory Committee to help select the best stamp ideas submitted by Canadians. The committee is made up of members from across Canada whose purpose is to consider subjects and designs for the annual stamp program.

The Stamp Advisory Committee looks for subjects that:

  • Are primarily related to Canada, of national significance, and appeal to broad segments of the Canadian population
  • Evoke Canadian history, traditions, accomplishments, or natural heritage
  • Illustrate the social, cultural, political, economic, or business life of Canada
  • Commemorate the birth, work, or an event in the life of an outstanding Canadian

Please note: The stamp program is subject to change without notice.
