A stamp to mark the opening of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights has been unveiled.

Canada Post is issuing the stamp, featuring the Tower of Hope and the curving glass façade of the 23-storey structure.

“When Canadians use this new stamp on their correspondence, they will help spread awareness of the museum and the importance of human rights across Canada and around the world,” said Stuart Murray, CMHR president and CEO. “As we prepare to welcome our first visitors, we keep in mind that this unique museum is distinctly Canadian, yet truly global, as it reflects the important contributions that individuals and peoples have made to advance the cause of human rights.”

The stamp goes on sale today and is available in booklets of 10. It was designed by Adrian Shum, with images from Mike Grandmaison.

The Canadian Museum for Human Rights opens September 20.
