Canada Post Celebrates Canada's 150th Birthday

with a set of commemorative stamps
Canada 150 Commemorative Equal Marriage Stamp

Their Latest Unveiling: Marriage Equality
The long road to marriage equality culminated in the 2005 passage of the Civil Marriage Act, which made Canada the fourth country to grant same-sex couples the right to marry the one they love.

Canada is among the first countries in the world to have extended legal rights to all couples.

The Marriage Equality stamp is the fourth stamp in a set of 10 that Canada Post is issuing to celebrate Canada’s 150th year since Confederation. The stamp honours the passing of the Civil Marriage Act, the federal legislation that made marriage equality the law across Canada.
With the passing of the act in 2005, Canada became the fourth country in the world and the first outside of Europe to extend to its citizens the right to marry the one they loved.

Today, with support continuing to grow across the globe, more than 20 countries have legalized same-sex marriage on the national level. However, for many in the LGBTQ community, the conversation around and the fight for equality continues.
