Your theme’s importance in the Canadian context
Any significant, related anniversaries or upcoming events
Please remember that stamp theme selection happens 2 years in advance of release. If your suggestion involves time-sensitive events, please be aware this may affect its eligibility.
Please note that Canada Post does not pay for stamp theme suggestions, whether or not we use them.Footnote *
Mail your theme description to: Chairperson of the Stamp Advisory Committee

What happens next
Our Stamp Advisory Committee of Canadian history, design and philatelic experts reviews submissions once a year. After this, our Board of Directors reviews the committee’s recommendations to make the final selections.
We recognize and appreciate all suggestions. As a participant, you’ll be notified when the selections have been made with an announcement of the chosen themes for the year.
