A total of 5,806 value changes occurred in Canada this year, 44 of which were sprinkled throughout the provinces. Trends this year are similar to those of last year. The first trend is that the market for classic and high-grade Canada and Provinces stamps remains quite strong. True very fine examples of these early stamps are very elusive, and values remain steady, even though the value of the Canadian dollar has further weakened against the United States dollar.
The second continuing trend is the weak Canadian dollar, valued at only 73¢ in U.S. currency in early 2016. The result is that from Scott 900 to current issues (about 2,000 Scott numbers), almost all stamps, unused and used, have dropped in value somewhat. Last year, the Canadian dollar was valued at 80¢ U.S.
All told more than 20,000 value changes are recorded in Volume 2 of the 2017 Scott Standard Postage Stamp Catalogue. Denmark received a thorough review resulting in 2,629 value changes.
