The St. Catharines Stamp Club (Royal Philatelic Society of Canada Chapter 53) has more than seven decades of history in Ontario’s “Garden City.”

Our executive includes:

  • President Dave Hillier;
  • Vice-President Ken Meyers;
  • Treasurer Jim Glen;
  • Secretary Rod Paige; and
  • Interim Circuit Manager and Immediate Past President Stuart Keeley.


Jan. 28, 2023: The St. Catharines Stamp Club’s annual Cathex show will return for the first time since 2020 with 10 dealers, our comprehensive club circuit, our ever-popular lunch counter plus free admission and parking! The hours are 10 a.m.-6 p.m. at the Grantham Lions Club on 732 Niagara St. in St. Catharines, Ont.

Both the 2022 and 2021 Cathex shows were cancelled due to COVID-19.

The St. Catharines Stamp Club meets twice monthly to enjoy the social and trading aspects of collecting stamps.

Our 2022-2023 meetings will be held on the first and third Tuesdays of each month from September through June beginning on Sept. 6, 2022. The meetings are held at the wheelchair-accessible Grantham Lions Club on 732 Niagara St. and usually run from 6:45 p.m.-8:45 p.m. Every meeting has club circuit books, a “five-cent stamp” box and a dealer, and the second meeting of the month is usually an auction night.

Directions: From the QEW, take the Niagara Street exit and go north on Niagara Street (towards Lake Ontario). The Grantham Lions Club is about four kilometres north of the QEW. The hall is on the right side of the street after Linwell Road and before Lakeshore Road.
