It is hosted by the Middlesex Stamp Club and is managed by volunteers from various stamp clubs in Southern Ontario and related philatelic organizations and societies.

It is sanctioned by The Royal Philatelic Society of Canada and is part of the American Philatelic Societies "World Series of Philately".

CANPEX 2020

Each year CANPEX recognizes a significant event or milestone in the history of the area. London has a proud sports history. The Guinness Book of World Records recognizes Labatt Park in London as the "oldest continually operating baseball grounds in the world", with a history dating back to 1877. Other sports teams have achieved their place in history, from the London Tecumsehs baseball club to the London Knights hockey. The Western Ontario Secondary School Athletic Association (WOSSA) celebrates it's 100th anniversary in 2020.

The National Stamp Club Challenge. An opportunity for stamp clubs to engage in an annual exhibiting competition. Is your stamp club prepared to accept the challenge? For previous year's winners, more information and an application form, please see our Stamp Club Challenge page.

CANPEX is an event where collectors can gather to purchase stamps and postal history, view an impressive array of exhibits, and renew old acquaintances. The highlight of the weekend is the awards reception. It's a great chance for everyone to socialize after the exhibits have been judged. Click "Reception" above for information on tickets. Please join us as we celebrate philately and Stamp Collecting Month.
