The official web site of Canada Post.
In addition to offering an overview of the philatelic collections preserved by the National Archives of Canada, the Canadian Postal Archives site allows visitors to find information about every postage stamp issued by Canada and British North America since 1851. The site includes search engines that are linked to the Philatelic Library's catalogue database, to a database relating to post offices, and to a database on Canadian stamps. The latter provides access to thousands of digitized documents. In addition, several thematic games allow visitors to discover and explore the treasures of this philatelic heritage.
The Royal Philatelic Society of Canada (RPSC) is Canada's national society for philatelists (stamp collectors, enthusiasts and aficionados).
Collectors of stamps and postal history of Canada and its provinces will find this a comfortable and stimulating place to enjoy the hobby.
The aims of the Society include the promotion and study of all aspects of British North American philately. Membership is worldwide and there is, naturally, a strong representation in Canada and the USA.
The PHSC is devoted to the study of the postal history of Canada and the early North American colonies.
