Media Advisory - The third of 10 Canada 150 stamps to be unveiled online

By lauding Canadian innovation and technology, Canada Post continues to tell compelling celebratory stories for Canada 150

TORONTO, May 3, 2017 /CNW/ - Canada Post will continue to celebrate Canada 150 by unveiling the third of 10 special commemorative stamps, this one with special guest Canadian astronaut Jeremy Hansen (details below).

Each of the 10 stamps to be unveiled separately over the next five 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:

An online stamp reveal commemorating one of Canada's proudest and most celebratory moments with special guest Canadian astronaut Jeremy Hansen and the students of Glen Ames Senior Public School in Toronto.



Unveiling the third of 10 stamps that will highlight unforgettable moments of Canada's past 50 years, in honour of Canada 150.


Thursday, May 4, 10 a.m.


Online only. A video unveiling the third stamp will be posted on the Canada Post Magazine at
