Media Advisory - The fourth of 10 Canada 150 stamps to be revealed

Stamp will be unveiled in Toronto at The 519

TORONTO, May 8, 2017 /CNW/ - Canada Post will continue to celebrate Canada 150 by unveiling the fourth of 10 special commemorative stamps, this one in partnership with The 519 in Toronto (details below).

Each of the 10 stamps to be unveiled separately over the next few weeks tells an exceptional story about a Canadian achievement, milestone or unforgettable moment from the past 50 years (since Canada's centennial in 1967). These multimedia events will be Canada Post at its best as the country's storyteller, a role anchored in its iconic national stamp program.

These moments of great significance were chosen by Canada Post's independent Stamp Advisory Committee – 12 members of the public who are experts in their field, including historians, archivists, philatelists, graphic designers and others.

The Event:

The storytelling continues on Tuesday, May 9 as we commemorate one of Canada's most recent historic milestones, in partnership with The 519 in Toronto.
