Canada Post had released "The Millennium Collection" a set of 68 stamps embedded in a specially made book. These stamps were not issued separately and also were not a part of that years programme. Subsequently citing "popular demand", they released these stamps as a series of 17 Millennium souvenir sheets, each depicting four different stamps, starting December 17, 1999 through to March 17, 2000.
Pioneers and Peacekeepers, January's series of four Millennium souvenir sheets features, among others, Lester B. Pearson, Terry Fox and CIDA. These bold 112-by-108 mm souvenir sheets frame four 36-by-48 mm stamps in thematic groupings that celebrate Canadian giants in fields as diverse as medicine, finance, peacekeeping and international development.
ISSUE DATE: JANUARY 17, 2000
