CANPEX is the acronym for CAnadian National Philatelic EXhibition, the first of which was in 2016. 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. CANPEX is one of a few National Level exhibitions and stamp marketplaces held annually in Canada. It is sanctioned by The Royal Philatelic Society of Canada and is part of the American Philatelic Societies "World Series of Philately".

Regiment of Foot


Each year CANPEX recognizes a significant event or milestone in the history of the area. London and Southwestern Ontario has a rich and proud military history, beginning with the British regiments garrisoned at London in 1839 to guard against border raids. In later years London was the home of various battalions of The Royal Canadian Regiment. Today the 1st Hussars and 31 Canadian Brigade Group call London home.

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.
