UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Canada

Posted on Jan. 13, 2016 by in Latest Stamps

If the images on these definitive stamps look familiar, it’s because larger versions of the same ones appeared on U.S. and international-rate commemoratives issued in May 2014.

Designed by Lara Minja, of Lime Design, this second set of UNESCO definitives showcases the natural, historical and cultural treasures in our country that have been designated as important “to the common heritage of humanity.” They also allow you to share these incredible locations with friends and family at home and around the world.

The five sites on these Permanent™ domestic-rate stamps – the Landscape of Grand Pré (N.S.), the Rideau Canal (Ont.), SGang Gwaay (B.C.), Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump (Alta.) and Old Town Lunenburg (N.S.) – are among 17 UNESCO World Heritage sites in Canada. Another seven are tentatively listed for designation.

Parks Canada is responsible for the implementation of the World Heritage Convention in Canada and the protection and conservation of 12 of these amazing sites.
