Her Excellency the Right Honourable Julie Payette, Governor General of Canada, participated in the unveiling of stamps celebrating Apollo 11 and Canadian contributions to the mission at the Héroux-Devtek plant located in Longueuil, Quebec, on June 27, 2019.

The Apollo 11 mission was a giant leap for human space exploration and featured significant Canadian ingenuity and innovation. Canadian engineers working at NASA and at Héroux-Devtek—a company based in Longueuil, Quebec, that built part of the lunar lander—were instrumental in making the mission a success.
