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.
During the gold rush in what was to become Nahanni National Park World Heritage Site (Northwest Territories), prospectors failed to find their fortune, but discovered an incredibly varied landscape. Virginia Falls and the twists of Hell’s Gate were sculptered by the last ice age.
