Rideau Canal, Ottawa, Canada

Ottawa is the capital of Canada. The city is situated on the south bank of the Ottawa River, and contains the mouths of the Rideau River and the Rideau Canal. The canal was opened in 1832 as a precaution in case of war with the United States. It remains in use today primarily for pleasure boating. It is the oldest continuously operated canal system in North America, and in 2007 it was registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The two corner stamps are from an 2013 issue “ Canadian Pride”. The stamp in the middle is a Queen Elizabeth II definitive.
