Hours at The RPSC offices have been restricted due to the ongoing worldwide pandemic. Expect delays in the processing of new memberships and responses to emails and voice mail messages.
May everyone continue to stay well and keep safe. May you continue to all support one another. If your circumstances permit, please continue to support our hobby and its dealers. Stay in touch with your friends, club members and The RPSC. Subscribe to philatelic publications as a distraction from the news about COVID-19 and its consequences. These are times when people need to be kind to one another. May our enjoyment of stamp collecting and our continued recognition of its friendships and fellowship help to sustain us through these stressful and extraordinary times.

Best regards

The Royal Philatelic Society of Canada

À tous nos membres

Prenez bien soin de vous et de vos proches et continuez de vous appuyer les uns les autres. Dans la mesure du possible, continuez de faire la promotion de la philatélie et d’appuyer nos détaillants. Gardez contact avec vos amis, membres du club et la SRPC sans oublier nos publicistes philatélistes qui nous permettent d’oublier quelque peu la Covid 19 et ses effets. Plus que jamais la solidarité et la gentillesse les uns vis-à-vis les autres sont essentielles.

Faisons en sorte que le bonheur que procure la philatélie et les liens d’amitié qu’elle nous permet de tisser soient sources de réconfort pendant ces moments difficiles.

Meilleures salutations à tous,
Ed Kroft QC FRPSC, président
La Société royale de philatélie du Canada
