Animal Stamp of Canada

Canada has a country of the second place world that is next to Russia. Briton Cabot reached Newfoundland and declared the U.K. territory in 1947. It circulated through colonization between the French whom it settled in afterward from the 17th century, and it was competed, and the U.K. won, and British rule established it in 1763. It assumed the official name of the country Canada in 1949. Oil, coal, the natural gas are blessed with mining production resources and forestry, the marine products industry are prosperous, but the industrialization such as pulp, aluminum, a car advances, too and there is finance and the service trade, too and occupies the corner of the developed nation.
Four kinds of stamps which it drew the bird of the Canada special product on were issued as the bird series every year from 1997 to 2000. It became the one of the favorite stamps.
