Supreme Court of Canada Building Featured on New Stamp

Canada Post has chosen the Supreme Court of Canada as one of the structures to be showcased in a five-stamp issue celebrating the Art Deco period. The issue, which is being launched today, displays features of structures from across Canada that embody the Art Deco style of the 1930s:
  • Burrard Bridge – Vancouver,
  • R. C. Harris Water Treatment Plant – Toronto,
  • Cormier House – Montreal,
  • Supreme Court of Canada – Ottawa, and
  • Dominion Building – Regina
For its stamp of the Supreme Court, Canada Post chose one of the rosettes on the ceiling of the Grand Entrance Hall.

The Supreme Court of Canada building was designed by Montreal architect Ernest Cormier.

Ordering information is available online.
