WHC Becomes Main Philatelic Product Provider
Effective April 1, 2013, Canada Post no longer offers Wildlife Habitat Canada philatelic stamp products (“Canadian Wildlife Habitat Conservation Stamp Products”) for sale. WHC is now the main distributor of these philatelic items, which include: Mint Stamps, Artist Signed Stamps, 16-pane Stamp Sheets and Corner Blocks.
*Please note that Canada Post still offers the Migratory Game Bird Hunting Permit for sale through its locations.
The vast majority of conservation stamps are purchased by waterfowl hunters, as the stamp comes affixed to the federal Migratory Game
Bird Hunting Permits to validate the permit; however, stamps are also sold to print purchasers, stamp collectors, and individuals interested
in contributing to the conservation, restoration and enhancement of wildlife habitat in Canada.
Wildlife Habitat Canada is pleased to offer the following philatelic products for sale:
- Mint Stamp (also known as “Souvenir booklet”)
- Artist Signed Stamp (also known as “Artist Signed Souvenir booklet”)
- 16-stamp pane in folder
- Corner (4-pane) blocks in folder (UL, LL, LR, UR)
