WATCH: Commemorating Expo 67 50 years later with a stamp

A stamp has been unveiled to commemorate Expo 67.

Montreal's world fair opened 50 years ago Thursday. 

The stamp features a picture of the famous Habitat 67, a unique model community and housing complex near the Montreal Casino.

"The stamp was unveiled by Canada Post, part of how it's celebrating Canada's 150th anniversary. And though it isn't the first time Habitat has been featured on a Canadian stamp, it is the first time in Canadian history that a stamp will actually be in the shape of a maple leaf", reported CTV's Angela McKenzie.     

Nine other stamps will be unveiled in the next five weeks.
