First Issues - 1868 to 1870

Commemoratives of first issues for Canada and Canadian Provinces

The Canadian provinces which issued stamps before Canada itself were Canada Province, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, British Columbia and Vancouver Island and Prince Edward Island.

Canada has done a remarkably poor job of celebrating a rich philatelic heritage. Other stamps have been depicted but, of the first issues, only BC & VI and the Beaver.
