It’s a good time to be a philatelist.
This week offers the decade’s largest and most exciting philatelic gathering with the highly anticipated World Stamp Show, which runs May 28-June 4 at Manhattan’s Javits Convention Center.

Free copies of CSN will also be available at the shared booth. What’s more, Canada Post (Booth No. 429) is attending the show alongside more than 50 postal administrations from around the world.
On June 2, the Ninth Postal History Symposium will be held in conjunction with the World Stamp Show. This year’s theme is “How Postal Treaties Influenced Post Office Reforms.”
Later this week, on June 4, the annual Kingston Coin, Stamp and Militaria Collectors Show is slated to take place at the Kingston Communications and Electronics Museum on 85 Craftsman Blvd. in Kingston, Ont.
Also on June 4 is the North Toronto Stamp Club Summer Bourse, which takes place at Toronto’s Yorkminster Park Baptist Church on 1585 Yonge St.
