2010 Vancouver Olympic Postmark Schedule

Canada Post has announced that it will make available a total of 35 Olympic and Paralympic event/venue postmarks. These postmarks are reproduced here and may be ordered directly through the mail from Canada Post's National Philatelic Center in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Canada.

For those attending the Olympic Winter Games, the 24 Olympic Winter Games postmarks will be available at certain post offices in the Vancouver and Whistler areas between February 12-27, 2010. For a list of post offices offering the Paralympic postmarks, please click here.

Canada Post has changed their system for postmarking mail at the 5 area post offices. All event postmarks assigned to a specific post office will be available each day that the post office is open. The only place to obtain all event postmarks remains the Vancouver Main post office. Availability is outlined in the table below.

Canada Post has no agreement with VANOC to provide official Canada Post outlets at any sporting venues nor at the two Olympic Villages (Vancouver & Whistler) and Main Media Center. According to current information, limited postal services (e.g. acceptance of out-going mail and sales of stamps) will be provided by a third-party at the Olympic Villages.
