The Nova Scotia Stamp Club as been in existence for over 80 years under its current constitution . Organized philately in Nova Scotia, however, is recorded back to the 1880's with the existence of the then Nova Scotia Philatelic Association (circa 1887). The Club today is still a vibrant organization of approximately 120 members from around the globe.  More club history ....

The club hosts a yearly bourse and exhibition - Novapex.  In 2004, for the first time in nearly forty years, the 76th Convention of the Royal Philatelic Society of Canada (RPSC) was hosted by NSSC and based on that success national shows were held at Halifax in 2006, 2010, 2012 and the Royal again in 2014. The NS Stamp Club, Chapter 50, is a founding member of RPSC. Many national and international class exhibitors have had their roots in the Club. In 2008, NS Stamp Club hosted NovaPex in conjunction with BNAPS Annual Convention. The club is now in a regular cycle of regional and national shows on opposite years - 2016 will be an national classed exhibit & bourse.

The mission and mandate of the Club is to encourage the collecting of postage stamps, related items and the study of Philately. To promote interest in the hobby, the Club meets monthly to exchange and acquire Philatelic items and knowledge for the mutual benefit of all members.  NSSC has a membership of more then 120 - mostly from Nova Scotia, but we also have members in other eastern provinces to Ontario and several International members.
