Celebrate an iconic Canadian and honour Black History Month with this booklet of 10 PermanentTM domestic stamps featuring distinguished public servant Lincoln M. Alexander.

A leader in the fight for racial equality and a champion of justice, education and heritage, Alexander was invested into the Order of Ontario and the Order of Canada. He achieved several notable firsts, becoming the first Black Canadian to be elected to the House of Commons, the first appointed to federal Cabinet and the first named to a viceregal position, serving as Lieutenant Governor of Ontario between 1985 and 1991.

The stamp features a black and white portrait of Alexander in profile. A gold metallic pays tribute to Alexander’s visionary influence.

Born in Toronto, Alexander served in the Royal Canadian Air Force during the Second World War before going on to study law. Following his career in public service he spent 15 years as chancellor at the University of Guelph. Alexander died in 2012 at the age of 90. Since 2015, he has been remembered across Canada on January 21, Lincoln Alexander Day.
