|General Description :||They’re wild, rugged, breathtakingly beautiful and a fascinating portal to the past – and not just because Canadians think so. These treasures of Canada have become UNESCO World Heritage sites and are celebrated in this multi-year stamp series, which will include both definitive and commemorative stamps.
Canada’s 17 World Heritage sites are deemed so valuable for their natural riches and cultural significance that they are recognized internationally. We introduce the series with five domestic stamps. Travel the rapids and whirlpools of the South Nahanni River in Nahanni National Park, scale the monumental peaks of the Canadian Rocky Mountains, and read the history of the Earth in the magma crust of Gros Morne National Park or in the fossil beds of Joggins Fossil Cliffs and Miguasha National Park.
