Canada-Israel, 60 years of friendship
Sixty years ago, on May 11, 1949, Israel and Canada established diplomatic relations and began building a fruitful cooperation. Over the years our countries have stood by each other and have continually strengthened our commitment as partners and friends in many fields, including commerce, science and technology, culture, education, public safety and trade. This international rate commemorative stamp celebrates Canada’s strong bilateral relationship with Israel—a friendship that spans six decades and is marked by shared values, common interests, and strong political, economic, cultural and social ties.
The Canadian government has issued a beautiful postage stamp honoring Canada's diplomatic relationship with Israel. The stamp shows the Star of David together with the Maple Leaf. Please make a point of asking for and purchasing the stamp at your local postal service outlet.
