Organization: Canada Post
“Progress and Harmony for Mankind” was chosen as the theme for Japan’s $2,000,000,000 Expo 70 at Osaka where Canada, one of some seventy-six participating nations, erected four pavilions, one by the Federal Government and one each by the Provinces of British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec.
In Recognition of Canada’s four-fold participation the Canada Post Office prepared four commemorative stamps, three of which associate the appropriate provincial floral emblem with the Expo 70 symbol, a stylized cherry blossom. Canada’s fourth stamp associates the Expo 70 symbol with that of our Centennial year World Fair, Expo 67.
First day of sale for the Expo 70 stamps is 18th March 1970.
Collectors may order their stamps at face value through Philatelic Service Canada Post Office Ottawa 8, Ontario.
Issued by the Information and Public Relations Branch.
