Welcome to the Canadian Philatelic Society of Great Britain website.


Founded over seventy years ago to promote and study all aspects of philately in British North America (Canada and its Provinces), the Society, which welcomes all BNA collectors from beginner to expert, is happy to receive enquiries from interested potential members.

The Society provides many benefits and services to its members. You should consider joining because of:-


27 March The booking form and competition entry form for the 2024 Convention in Jersey can now be found online at the Convention page.

23 March The January and April 2024 issues of Maple Leaves contain an article on the Newfoundland First Resources Issue with much of the reasearch done from the PB&Co Engravings Book 1923 - 1935. It was not practical to include all of the original scans from this Engravings Book in the Journal but they provide a useful research resource for all Newfoundland collectors and you can access them here.

3 January 2024 We have added some photos from the 2023 Convention in Barnsley. You can find them here.

27 September The listings of past Society trophy winners have been updated to reflect awards made at our 2023 Convention.

26 September Whilst we have found a volunteer to take over responsibilty for the Society Library, members should be aware that it will take several months for the Library contents to be packed up and relocated to the new home. During this period the Library will not be available. Further details will be provided when we have a firm date for the Library operation to recommence.

26 September The listing of Society Officers has been updated following our AGM on 23 September.

26 September Following a decision taken at our 2023 AGM, the Society Exchange Packet has been permanently closed.

The Society Facebook page is 'Canadian Philatelic Society of Great Britain' and we also have a group discussion page which is 'Canadian Philatelic Society of GB Discussion Group'.
