The Ottawa Philatelic Society (OPS) is a not-for-profit organization that promotes the enjoyment and study of philately in the Ottawa – Gatineau region. We do this through weekly meetings where members and guests interested in philately can get together to discuss their interests, exchange stamps, participate in specialized study groups, listen to guest speakers, consult one of the best philatelic libraries in Canada and exhibit their collections. OPS is a major supporter of the annual two-day Ottawa Regional Association of Philatelic Exhibitions (ORAPEX) stamp show which is open to the general public, sponsors a Youth Booth for kids and furthers philatelic the community.


     As a community-based organization, OPS can always use financial support. We accept donated collections in support of our philatelic activities, ensuring that the stamps remain in the hands of collectors who will most appreciate them. If you wish to make a donation to the OPS, please contact our Donations Coordinator.
