In Canada, postal orders were known by the name 'postal notes', which means the same thing. As Canada is a federation (originally a confederation), postal notes are usually collected by the province of issue. Canada's postal notes were first issued during the reign of King Edward VII and were discontinued during the reign of King George VI. Postal notes were issued in most, if not all, Canadian provinces.

for a number of reasons, as there were many erroneous passages:

1) Postal orders and postal notes are separate things. 2) Postal orders and notes both originated in the reign of Queen Victoria. 3) Federation and confederation are not different forms of union - Canada is a federation that joined in a process called Confederation. It was not "originally" a confederation. 4) Postal orders were issued by a federal agency, and so all postal orders and notes were identical, regardless of the province of issue. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Chignecto (talkcontribs) 00:20, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

Canadian Postal Notes are not the same thing as Canadian Postal Money Orders[edit]

Canadian postal notes were issued from 1905 until around 1952. Including references to Canadian postal money orders and Canada Post is totally irrelevant.

Canadian postal notes are numismatic items, whereas, Canadian postal money orders are totally outside the accepted definition of what are numismatic items (banknotes, coins, postal orders, postal notes, and traders' currency tokens). - ( (talk) 05:07, 15 August 2009 (UTC))
