Cover with postcards and stamps from Canada

I have received cover from Canada with 3 postcards and some older Canadian stamps.

First postcard is wildlife from Canadian province Nova Scotia

On second postcard you can see HMCS Charlottetown 

HMCS Charlottetown is a Halifax-class frigate that has served in the Royal Canadian Navy since 1995. Charlottetown, assigned to Maritime Forces Atlantic and homeported at CFB Halifax, serves on missions protecting Canada's sovereignty in the Atlantic Ocean and enforcing Canadian laws in its territorial sea and Exclusive Economic Zone. Charlottetown has also participated in several NATO missions, patrolling the Atlantic Ocean as part of Standing Naval Force Atlantic and its successor Standing NATO Response Force Maritime Group 1. Charlottetown has also been deployed on missions throughout the Atlantic and to the Indian Ocean, specifically the Persian Gulf and Arabian Sea on anti-terrorism operations.

On third postcard you can AEA Silver Dart 

The Silver Dart was a derivative of an early aircraft built by a Canadian/U.S. team, which after many successful flights in Hammondsport, New York, earlier in 1908, was dismantled and shipped to Baddeck, Nova Scotia. It was flown off the ice of Baddeck Bay, a sub-basin of Bras d'Or Lake, on 23 February 1909, making it the first controlled powered flight in Canada. 

Almost all of these stamps are from first half of 20th century.

Stamp on cover is Chinese New Year - Year of the Monkey, issued on 01.02.2016.
I have received earlier prepaid postcard with same motive. You can see it here.

Thank you Leonard!
