All stamps are numbered according to the established Scott numbering System.
On September 6, 2011, Canada Post began issuing a new stamp in its Mental Health series. The design of the stamp was opened up to all Canadians and the favourite design out of the five finalists was voted on by the public. The winning stamp was the entry by Miriane Majeau of Terrebonne, QC, entitled ‘The Puzzle’.
