The Ottawa Regional Association of Philatelic Exhibits (ORAPEX) is, first and foremost, a national stamp show organized by a local committee. We were incorporated as a non-profit organization in 2021 and the show is primarily supported by the Ottawa Philatelic Society (OPS), the RA Stamp Club and Amicale des Philatélistes de l'Outaouais (APO), Sponsors, dealers, exhibitors, philatelic societies, volunteers and visitors make it the premiere philatelic destination in the Spring of every year.

Links and names on this resource page are listed to help support you in your philatelic pursuits. Each of the listed entities participate in the show: as award sponsors, study group or seminar presenters or in some other official role. We strongly encourage membership in local clubs and specialty societies - those are the places other than stamp shows where the enjoyment of stamps and postal history come alive in a social setting.
