THE POSTAL HISTORY OF ICAO

 

The Canadian Connection

 

This chapter of the ICAO Postal History provides the list of articles (with hyperlinks) published in the philatelic journal named The Canadian Connection. This quarterly journal is prepared by the Canadiana Study Unit (CSU) which is an organization for collectors of Canadiana philately; it was established in 1988 to highlight, document, and study postage stamps and covers issued worldwide, by countries outside Canada, showing a relationship to Canada or connection with Canada, through their marks, history, culture, industries, organizations, famous people, politicians, etc. The Canadian Connection provides specialized philatelic information to members of the CSU and keeps the membership up to date with information about various topics related to Canada.

 

The following series of articles are related to the ICAO philatelic collection and were published in The Canadian Connection; they provide a Canadiana relationship, as they show philatelic items issued outside Canada and having a connection to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), which has its headquarters in Montréal, Canada, since 1945.

 

From September 2012, a new series was started and named: The ICAO Corner. Each story within The ICAO Corner focuses on a specific subject, which, on one hand, displays the ICAO connection, and, on the other hand, provides the story of the pictures or events found on the stamps or covers. This two-fold approach expands the understanding of the Organization and reports on the background of the issues.

 

All entries hereafter provide hyperlinks to the original issue and are shown in chronological order of their publication.
