Frontier College - 100th anniversary Canada Post Official First Day Stamp Cover

Founded in 1899 as the Canadian Reading Camp Movement, Frontier College brought education to thousands of labourers in remote northern logging, mining and railway camps. Today, while educating migrant farm workers strengthens its country roots, Frontier College has also evolved into a powerful urban force for literacy.

Canada Post, another strong supporter of literacy in Canada, joins in celebrating the 100th anniversary of this historic institution with the release of an evocative new domestic-rate stamp. A product of Toronto’s Q30 Design Inc., under the art direction of Peter Scott and Glenda Rissman, this is an excellent condition Frontier College Official First Day Cover.
