Coronavirus Covid-19: 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.
Sadly, I regret to report that, on March 30, 2020, the board of directors of The Royal Philatelic Society of Canada (RPSC) decided that it was unsafe and impractical, based on current conditions, to hold The RPSC 2020 national convention,Royal 2020 Royale, and The RPSC 2020 annual general meeting in June 2020. These events, scheduled for Fredericton, New Brunswick, were much anticipated by collectors, exhibitors and members of The RPSC. The 2020 annual general meeting will be rescheduled for a later date. I wish to thank Rob Lunn FRPSC, his outstanding organizing committee, and the Fredericton District Stamp Club for the excellent efforts to date to make this event occur. Thanks to all the people who offered to volunteer in one way or another and to the dealers, judges and exhibitors who will not have the opportunity this June to gather with our members.

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

J’ai le regret de vous informer qu’à la suite de la rencontre de notre conseil d’administration, la Société royale de philatélie du Canada a jugé souhaitable de ne pas tenir son congrès annuel 2020 qui devait avoir lieu dans le cadre de la Royal *2020* Royale en juin prochain.

L’évènement qui devait avoir lieu à Fredericton au Nouveau-Brunswick était très attendu des collectionneurs, exposants et membres de la SRCP. L’assemblée annuelle sera reportée à une date ultérieure.

Je tiens à remercier Rob Lunn FRPSC, son extraordinaire comité organisateur et le Club de philatélie du district de Fredericton pour leur travail. Merci à tous les bénévoles ainsi qu’aux juges , détaillants et exposants qui ne pourront malheureusement profiter de cette rencontre annuelle avec 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
