Canadian Airways

At various times there were two companies operating under the name of Canadian Airways. The older company was organized in 1926 and was later absorbed by Western Canada Airways. The newer one, to which this chapter applies, was formed in Novermber 1930, taking over, amongst other companies, Western Canada Airways. The second Canadian Airways was the last company authorized by the Post Office Department to issue its own stamps.
