According to Canada Post, Canada Post began the tradition of featuring Nativity art on stamps in 1965, with an issue featuring the Gifts of the Magi. In the years since, the Nativity Scene has been portrayed in children’s illustrations (1970, 1975) stained glass windows (1976, 1997), gouache illustrations (1977), early Renaissance paintings (1978), icons (1988), Aboriginal art (2002), and more. The stamps have provided excellent opportunities to celebrate the birth of Jesus through Canadian art.

Booklets of the beautiful 2016 Master of the Castello Nativity, 2017 Adoration of the Shepherds and 2018 "Away in a Manger" are still available on the Canada Post website.
