‘Collection Canada 2018’ now available

Copies of Canada Post’s annual “Collection Canada 2018” stamp album began to arrive at post offices by the end of the first week in December.

Delivery was delayed during the five-week rotating strikes across the country by members of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers. With backlogs of undelivered mail mounting, the federal government ordered the strikes to end in the third week of November.

The latest edition of the hardback album contains details about each stamp, related photos and information about their designs and production. Since most modern stamps are issued in more than one format – including booklets plus souvenir sheets – only one version is included in the albums.

“This coveted collectible includes images and photographs from some of Canada’s finest creative professionals, as well as 58 mint-condition stamps and protective mounts to preserve them,” reads the Canada Post website.

Priced at $79.95 each, the collections are sold in protective slipcases at post offices or by mail order.
