#Canada150 Day 170

Canada150 170 Expo 67 introduced a new, vibrant Canada to the world – and now Canada Post is introducing an Expo 67 stamp to commemorate that exciting event. Habitat 67 is such an enduring symbol of Expo 67 that it was chosen to grace the stamp. The same housing complex was also chosen to host the well-attended stamp unveiling event today – 50 years to the day of Expo’s opening ceremonies. Safdie, an architect of global renown now based in Massachusetts – so revered that his body of work is the subject of books and museum exhibits – graciously took the time from his busy practice to attend and unveil the stamp.
