1984 Original Canada Day "Explorers of Canada" Government Issued Poster

This beautifully detailed poster was designed to commemorate and celebrate Canada Day and its festivities in 1984. It depicts Canada's colonial history in a glorified and noble manner, making it very much a product of its time. Listing both First Nations and Western individuals as "Explorers of Canada" along the poster's border, this piece conveys the pride and nationalist sentiments of the 1980s Canadian government and population.

This poster is in overall very good condition; it has but some fading and slight ruffling on the left margins.
