Is This an Original or Print Copy?

I just want to know if this is an original or print by Henry Peeters. Does a print usually come with the signature on the painting? I have never seen that, that's why I'm asking. Any info you can pass along will be appreciated! The "Made in Canada" sticker on the back just raised more questions about the painting.

It's hard to tell much by the picture, but I believe that it is a signed print. Is there glass over the picture? If so, I would say it's a print.
Framed prints are priced around $100 on up.
You might wish to have it appraised if you want to sell it. It will cost quite a bit though. The hourly rate varies widely from $80 up to $300 or more, depending upon the appraiser, his or her skills, and location, etc.

I have never seen an original painting marked like this on the back. Can you feel the brush strokes on the piece? That would tell you if it a painting. If it is behind glass, most likely it is not an oil or acrylic. There are many prints that are signed. Lithographs also can be signed. If you are asking to sell, you are best to find an auction house or professional dealer to sell it for you. Selling framed items is a challenge to ship and not recommended for people who that is no their niche. Post back with an update!

Henry Peeters - Glenham Arbor

Probably a print but you might be able to Google - photo lab with your zip code and most likely they will be able to tell you as they make copies of all sorts of paintings so they would know for sure.
Also, you may be surprised but most likely some one at a local pawn shop (large shop) can tell you in a couple of seconds.

It may even be a copy as this company make copies of works like this (they have local artist the 'recreate' the works).

These same painting is listed for sale on several sites but there is no way to compare until you know what you have.
Henry Peeters is a well known Chinese artist and his paintings are sold in several art galleries all over the world.

Here is a site that sells the prints so this could have been a place like this only located in Canada.

This looks like it has a glossy texture to the print when the light hits it. The marking on the back of this indicates that a company in Canada makes these or reproduced these for sale. I am not sure the real value of this because there is not much to go on here. I think this is a reproduction from the original and this company makes them and sells them on the market.
