Canada Post Stamps

These are stamps issued by Canada Post in the years of 2008, 2009 and 2010 as a part of a campaign for the Canada Post Foundation for Mental Health. The Canada Post Foundation for Mental Health was established to raise awareness about mental illness and build the capacity of front-line, grassroots organizations supporting individuals and families coping with mental illness.

There is a great need for better understanding of mental illness, which effects one in five Canadians, and community-based resources focused on those affected by it. Thanks to Canada Post’s employees, customers and suppliers, $4.8 million has been raised so the Foundation can help address this need.
