In 2006, BNAPS established an Education Committee under John Burnett to provide content on its website that would explore and explain the diverse collecting areas offered by BNA philately. The content would be freely available, and be geared to different levels of collecting expertise from novice to advanced. With the support of the Webmaster, John created an area of the website containing articles on a wide variety of BNA subjects catering to different levels of expertise.
In 2010, Leopold Beaudet became the Chair of the Education Committee. He consolidated the Education area of the website with several others offering similar content. Having the content listed together under the one classification scheme made it easier for viewers to find topics they were most interested in. In 2012, the area underwent a name change from Education to Online Resources & Exhibits (ORE).
The Online Resources & Exhibits (ORE) area of the BNAPS website explores the philately of British North America (BNA). The topics covered encompass postage stamps, postal stationery, postage meter stamps, permit stamps, stampless mail, postal history, revenue stamps and their usage, ephemera, and cinderellas. BNA includes Canada, its provinces and territories, and the former colonies that joined Confederation.
The ORE area focuses on overview, tutorial, and reference material. Its content takes on several forms:
