Assurance Licence Stamps

Québec's Assurance License stamps were used to collect a duty on licences granted to insurance companies during the period of 1876-1878. The duty on each licence was made proportional to the amount of business done by a company by affixing stamps on premium receipts at a rate of 1% or 3% (fire insurance) of the amount paid.
