The wildlife featured includes the ermine, snowshoe hare, Arctic fox, northern collared lemming and Peary caribou.
According to Canada Post, the brown fur of these animals turns white in winter, which actually camouflages them and makes it hard to spot them in their natural habitats.
They are especially unique because they are among 19 species of mammals in the world that have a coat colour change "as the result of a complex physiological process influenced by changes in daylight hours."
"Moulting is a gradual, twice-yearly process that starts around the time of the first snowfall and reverses in the warmer months, beginning around the time of the spring melt," the release explained.
Canada has 12 of these mammals.
The stamps were designed by Adrian Horvath and each photograph of the mammals was taken by a Canadian photographer.
