THE CANADA STUDY GROUP

 

The Canada Study Group meets on a monthly basis during the OPS year.  The group serves as an informal forum for OPS members and guests to share information and learn more about various aspects of philately associated with the stamps and postal history of Canada and British North America.  Typically meetings start with a short show and tell session to provide members with an opportunity to pass items around the group with a brief explanation, followed by a question and answer segment to allow members to seek specific advice.  The bulk of the subsequent meeting is then taken up with a facilitated discussion on a specific topic led by a group member.
