About the issue of stamps

The 2022 Canada Post Community Foundation stamp was designed by Joanna Todd by Chad Roberts Design. There is something magical about treehouses. They inspire the imagination, provide a place for imaginary play, and provide a setting for dreaming. Creating spaces for children – literal, virtual and figurative – is vitally important. That’s why the Canada Post Community Foundation exists.

This design was chosen by front-line Canada Post employees. The stamp is available at Canada Post outlets across the country and online at canadapost.ca/store. Follow these links to high resolution pictures.
