Official First Day Covers
If you wish to have your own First Day Cover cancelled, forward the self-addressed cover to the National Philatelic Centre in Antigonish:
NATIONAL PHILATELIC CENTRE
1-133 CHURCH ST
ANTIGONISH NS B2G 2R8
We make all day of issue cancels available for 60 days after the day of issue.
We levy a charge per cover for:
- Stamp affixing
- Return through the regular mail service
Cancellation of First Day Covers is available free of charge to customers who take their cover to a post office.
On request, philatelists may get a clear cancellation of philatelic covers by:
- Taking them to a post office
- Handing them in with a second envelope bearing a complete and valid postal address and enough postage
Postage must enable us to send such mail items to the addressee through regular mail delivery channels.
The postmaster will only comply with such requests for cancellation and reposting if the volume of the covers doesn’t disrupt regular postal services.
