Be Our Guest

Ready to experience what Toastmasters is all about?

We invite everyone to share in the fun and excitement of a Liberty Village Toastmasters meeting by visiting our club as a guest. Guests are always welcome and no appointment is necessary — just show up at a meeting!

One of our club officers will be sure to introduce themselves to you and introduce you to the club. After that, sit back and watch how it works. You’ll probably be invited to participate in our Table Topics Session, which gives members and guests a chance to practise their impromptu speaking skills.

We’re proud of the supportive and dynamic atmosphere we generate at our meetings and we’re always happy to share it with new people, whether or not you decide to join. If you think you might want to be part of our club, drop by and check us out!

 

When is the meeting?

Our club meets every Wednesday from 6 to 8 pm. The first 15 minutes are for meeting and greeting while the scheduled fun starts at 6:15.

Where is the meeting?

We meet in Assembly Room C at the Waterfront Neighbourhood Centre, located at 627 Queens Quay West at Bathurst St., Toronto.

The WNC can be reached at 416-392-1509 and via email at info@waterfrontnc.ca

    Hello,

    I am interested in exploring a few Toastmaster clubs in the Toronto region. I have been a member of a club in Hamilton for two years now. I now live in Toronto and looking for a club to join. The next few months I am working on transfering my executive roles to other members before I leave.

    How many members does your club have? What is the fees? Is there parking?

    Thanks in advance,
    Matthew

    Hi,

    I”m in the midst of a career transition and the Toast Masters environment looks like like a good option for getting comfortable with public speaking skills. Do you allow people to drop into a session? As with the prior post by Matthew, I’m also wondering about the fees for your club.

    Many thanks,
    Mimi

    • Thanks for your interest in Toastmasters. Feel free to drop in anytime to get a sense of what our club is all about. We would be more than happy to discuss further any questions you have. In terms of fees, it’s quite minimal – around $75 every six months plus a small fee for workbooks.

      Hope to see you at our future meetings!
