Canadian Revenue Stamp Catalogue 1987 Artist signed stamp in booklet + 1987 Artist signed and numbered matching print

Each year, Wildlife Habitat Canada (WHC) holds a national art competition. The winning entry is then used as the design for the Canadian Wildlife Habitat Conservation Stamp (the stamp). This stamp is also known unofficially as the Canadian Duck Stamp. The purpose of the stamp is threefold: it is required to be affixed to the physical migratory game bird hunting permit and there is an electronic image of the stamp on the PDF electronic permit purchased through the MGBH e-Permitting System it raises funds for wildlife and habitat protection and restoration projects it brings attention to the importance of wildlife and their habitats Funds raised from the sale of the stamp (when purchasing the MGBH permits, Stamp collecting products, and fine Art products) go to the Canadian Wildlife Habitat Conservation Stamp Initiative program, which is managed by Wildlife Habitat Canada (WHC). WHC is a national non-profit, charitable conservation organization that was established in 1984. WHC’s objectives are to provide funding for wildlife habitat conservation in Canada, to conserve, restore and enhance wildlife habitat and to foster coordination and leadership in the conservation community. The funds from the Canadian Wildlife Habitat Conservation Stamp specifically support projects that include waterfowl, migratory birds and their habitats.

Canada UCS#2844 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Canada RECALLED Souvenir Sheet

Officials at Canada Post issued a recall on a stamp featuring Dinosaur Provincial Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The error comes from the image used on the stamp, which is of a set of hoodoos, a rock formation found in the provincial park, located just north of Brooks, Alberta.

The problem is that the image on the stamp is actually of hoodoos that exist east of Drumheller, a community about an hour and a half northwest of Brooks. Canada Post apologized for the error and recalled the stamps, however some had already been sold to the public.
