The Week in Shows (May 21-27)

There are four major stamp shows on this week’s docket, and among them is one of upmost distinction: Royal*2017*Royale, the 89th convention of The Royal Philatelic Society of Canada (RPSC), will open in Boucherville, Que. later this week.

Organized by l’Association des numismates et des philatélistes de Boucherville (ANPB) and the Fédération québécoise de philatélie (FQP), the convention will be held May 26-28 at Hôtel Mortagne on 1228 Nobel St. in Boucherville, Que. Admission and parking are free.

Nearly 30 of Canada’s top philatelic dealers will preside over more than 45 tables of material on the bourse, which is being held in the hotel’s Boucherville Room. Canadian Stamp News will be selling magazines as well as philatelic supplies at table six.

The bourse will open to the public at 10 a.m. each day before closing at 5 p.m. on May 26 and 4 p.m. on the following two days.
