CANPEX is the acronym for CAnadian National Philatelic EXhibition, the first of which will be 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".
Each year CANPEX recognizes a significant event or milestone in the history of the area. For the 2016 exhibition we honour Frederick Banting, the co-founder of insulin. 2016 marks 125 years since the birth of this remarkable man.
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.
