Canadian definitives are "workhorse" stamps - they are the most accessible of Canadian stamps and those mostly used for mailings. In the past, they have featured a variety of imagery, including photos of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the Parliament buildings, various images of the flag, native trees and wildlife, and for the past several years, flowers, including a three-year series of Orchid stamps, interrupted in 2009, by Vancouver 2010 Olympic definitives.

Baby Wildlife Definitives by Canada Post
In deciding to release a multiple-year series of definitives featuring Canada's cutest, cuddliest baby creatures, it was a given that both collectors and consumers would have an emotional reaction to the images. From nose - rubbing Arctic hares and a steel-faced baby red fox, to fuzzy baby geese and a cheeky Polar bear cub who is definitely ready for his close-up, these stamps provide a rare glimpse into nature's nursery.
