Canada Post releases 2022 stamp lineup

Canadian stamps are recognized internationally, as beautiful imagery and eye-catching colours capture the attention of stamps lovers across the world.

The general public, special interest groups, and collectors take a keen interest in Canadian stamps because they serve as a reflection of the nation, have educational value and offer stunning designs.

This year, Indigenous leaders, legendary singers, and vintage travel posters will be making appearances in Canada’s 2022 stamp collection.

Other stamps will shine a spotlight on the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, organ and tissue donation and endangered whales.

The Independent Stamp Advisory Committee recommends the subjects for the annual stamp program and relies on thoughtful input from groups and individuals to ensure that the ideas chosen are meaningful to all Canadians.

Each year, the stamp program consists of about 20 broad subjects or themes covering some 40 to 50 individual stamps.

This year's lineup includes the following subjects, among others:

  • Two legendary jazz and blues singers
  • Life-saving organ and tissue donation
  • Vintage travel posters, which will be launched at the CAPEX 22 international philatelic exhibition in Toronto
  • Three eminent Indigenous leaders
  • The plight of endangered whales in Canadian waters
  • Vintage carousels that are the pride of five Canadian communities
  • The National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, which honours the lost children and survivors of the residential school system and their families and communities
  • Canadians in Flight, part II, a return trip showcasing more examples of aeronautical prowess.

More popular series will also be making a return this year:

  • Annual Flower stamps will bloom with elegant callas.
  • The Canada Post Community Foundation issue will once again encourage Canadians to support children and youth.
  • New Eid, Diwali and Hanukkah stamps will honour the spirit of these cultural celebrations.
  • Annual Christmas and holiday stamp issues will feature a modern take on the Nativity and messages of good cheer from three beautiful birds.

The public is also encouraged to send in their own stamp suggestions, but ideas that are time-sensitive must be sent at least two years in advance. Learn how to send in your own ideas on the Canada Post website here.
