About Stamp

The "Commission préparatoire" or World's Executive Committee of the International Postal Union held its sessions in Ottawa from 18th May to 28th June, 1933. This committee was constituted after World War I to deal with innumerable problems of international postal service arising after that upheaval. The Commission performed a valuable service in simplifying objectives by reducing the agenda of the various World Postal Congresses to the minimum.
