On July 16, Canada Post will issue a single commemorative stamp to mark the 400th anniversary of the establishment of the French settlement at Port-Royal, Nova Scotia. The
domestic-rate stamp (50c), featuring French explorer Samuel de Champlain's drawing of the Habitation, is the second in a series of stamps celebrating French settlements established between 1604 and 1608, and related explorations, in what became Canada.
