100-years young University of British Columbia gets birthday stamp

On March 7th, Canada Post will celebrate the centenary of the University of British Columbia (UBC) with a domestic rate (52-cent) stamp. An Act to Establish and Incorporate a University for the Province of British Columbia was passed 100 years ago on this very same day. Point Grey, a 175-acre site on a peninsula on Vancouver's West Side was selected to be its eventual campus.

The modern new stamp design celebrates this significant date in style and features the University's Walter C. Koerner Library building, an impressive and prominent structure located in the centre of the campus.
