BNAPEX 2021 is slated for Winnipeg, Man., this September. It will be sponsored by the Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario Regional Group and hosted by the Winnipeg Philatelic Society.

While last year’s 72nd annual BNAPEX was cancelled due to COVID-19, the yearly convention typically boasts a 160-frame British North America competitive exhibition plus a 20-dealer bourse and more than 15 study group meetings and seminars. Admission is free for each of the three days, but registration is required for the awards banquet and various social events.

March 2021 update: Ron Majors, BNAPS president, and Mark Berner, chairman of the board of directors, wish to advise people that because of COVID-19 considerations, it has become necessary to cancel BNAPEX 2021 WINNIPEX, which was scheduled to take place on the Labour Day weekend in Winnipeg.

Not wanting to run two years without a major BNAPS event, the society has since announced BNAPEX 2021 VIRTUAL. The virtual convention will include an online exhibition of single- and multi-frame exhibits to be judged by a qualified jury, Study Group meetings and seminars, the BNAPS annual general meeting, social sessions and, if at all possible, a virtual bourse to allow members and dealers to interact online. Planning is underway, and more details will be provided soon.


Presented by Canadian Coin News and Canadian Stamp News, the National Postage Stamp and Coin Show features 50-plus professional coin and stamp dealers from across Canada. Highlights include a two-day live “Premier Auction” by Colonial Acres; various seminars; and the Young Collectors discounted sales table and popular free youth auction on Sunday.

Admission is $5 on Saturday and $2 on Sunday. Families are free on Sunday. The show is open on Saturday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Parking is free. For show updates, visit
