• RPSC Royal Show this June in Mississauga, Ontario

    The Bramalea Stamp Club, West Toronto Stamp Club and Canadian Stamp News are pleased to host The Royal Philatelic Society of Canada Royal *2019* Royale June 21-23, 2019 at the Hilton Mississauga, located at 6750 Mississauga Road in Mississsauga, Ontario. This year's Royal has two special themes -- this marks the 60th Anniversary of the Canadian Philatelic Association receiving its ROYAL designation from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Our second theme, 'It's Your Royal,' pays tribute to all members and the important role each one plays in enhancing our hobby for collectors of all ages and levels.

 


Royal returns to Greater Toronto

After a 12-year absence, The Royal Philatelic Society of Canada’s biggest show and exhibition of the year is returning to the Greater Toronto Area thanks to three philatelic organizations.

The Bramalea Stamp Club, West Toronto Stamp Club and Canadian Stamp News (CSN) are teaming up to organize Canada’s most prestigious philatelic show.

The three-day national exhibition and show is expected to draw more than 200 exhibition frames plus more than 25 professional dealers from Canada, the U.S. and Great Britain.

The three organizations have established a volunteer organizing committee with Joe Trauzzi, of the Bramalea Stamp Club, as chairman. Joe’s spouse, Wendi Trauzzi, is co-ordinating all of the special events including a special bus trip to the iconic Village of St. Jacobs and the popular St. Jacobs Farmers Market.

Mike Walsh, of CSN, is overseeing the bourse and  marketing while Rodney Paige is the exhibits chair and Bob Thorne is organizing the mammoth task of setting up the frames.

Garfield Portch, of the West Toronto Stamp Club, is in charge of show program while Lawrence Pinkney, also of West Toronto Stamp Club, is treasurer.

Jesse Robitaille, of CSN, is assisting with social media.

Stuart Keeley is serving as The RPSC’s representative.

The size of the committee will grow in leaps and bounds in the coming weeks as numerous volunteers from the host organizations will be coming forward to help put on this massive philatelic event.

Anyone wishing to volunteer in any capacity can email Chair Joe Trauzzi at jtrauzzi@yahoo.ca.
