The images on these non-denominated definitive stamps look identic, it’s because larger versions of the same ones appeared on U.S. and international-rate commemoratives issued on 16th May 2014.  

The stamps were issued (die–cut/self–adhesive) in booklets of 10 and 30 stamps and (perforated / water-activated) in a miniaturesheet.

Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump (Alberta).
The Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump image illustrates hunting techniques of Plains People over thousands of years
Rocky Mountain ridges in distance.

Lunenburg (Nova Scotia).
The Old Town Lunenburg stamp showcases distinctive 18th and 19th century European-influenced architecture. And of course it is the home of the famous ship, the Bluenose II.

Grand Pré (Nova Scotia).
The Grand Pré landscape stamp demonstrates 17th century farming techniques. It is also a place of reflection and remembrance of the Acadian deportation.

Haida memorial poles (British Columbia).
The site of SGang Gwaay commemorates 10,000 years of connection between land, sea and Haida culture. It includes remains of 19th century houses and memorial and mortuary poles.

Rideau Canal (Ontario).
The Rideau Canal stamp honours the oldest continuously operated canal in North America which opened in 1832. The Rideau Canal is one of the first canals designed specifically for steam-powered vessels.
