New Stamp - 2018 The Year of Dog

Date of Issue : 15 January 2018

Two new issues were released  by Canada Post today celebrating Lunar New Year - the Year of the Dog !
The design of the non-denominated Permanent stamp includes a Chinese paper lantern with the image of a dog overlaid in red. The words dog, chien and the Chinese characters for “gǒu” (or dog). The set will also include an international-rate stamp as well as a souvenir sheet.
From Feb. 16, 2018 to Feb. 4, 2019, those born in the Year of the Dog will have plenty of days to call their own. Possessing many of the same positive attributes as  canines, those people born in the Year of the Dog are known to be trustworthy, protective, courageous and driven by a sense of duty and justice.
