1982: CANADA ’82 Intl. Philatelic Youth Exhibition, Toronto, May 20-24, One stamp missing from this set.

1982-87: Artifacts Definitives
A new series of definitives, featuring Artifacts, appeared in 1982. This type of design lasted just 5-6 years, resulting in 7 low-value and 9 medium value designs.
I have arranged the stamps as per the Scott Catalogue and Nos. Hence the complete set doesn't appear in the first sheet below. The one from the low value and the three from the medium value can be seen in the fourth sheet.
