In response to the popularity of 2005's flower and flag definitives, the 2006 definitive issues will focus on wild nature with floral tributes to the Blue Poppy, the Lady Slipper and the Monarda Didyma. The 2006 flag definitives will offer mailers even more variety with five unique scenic views from across Canada, all at the domestic rate. Canada Post's continuing Wildlife series of high-value definitives will add two new issues to replace the current Polar Bear stamp. These new stamps will feature the Sable Island Horse and the Peregrine Falcon. Both stamps will be issued at the $2 rate.
