The Probus Club of Toronto

Log in


The PROBUS Club of Toronto was established in 2014 to meet the needs of Toronto-based retirees.

With monthly meetings and dozens of regular activities and special events for retired and semi-retired men and women, we create a place of enjoyment and fellowship, emphasizing the Probus motto “Our Strength is Fellowship; Our Success is Participation."     

Some of our most popular activities and events include bookclubs, dining, discussions, walking and hiking, gardening, geocaching, golf, movies, pickleball, theatre and the arts, writing and more.


Thank you for your interest in joining PROBUS Toronto.

At this time, our membership waitlist is closed to prospective new members. 

We have a membership cap of 325 and a waitlist cap of 100. We bring in new members from the waitlist annually around October 1. We then open the waitlist to prospective new members until we reach 100 again.

Please check back on October 1, 2024

The Club meets on the second Wednesday of each month, year round, from 10 am to 12 noon. A typical meeting consists of a 30 minute update of Club happenings, 30 minutes of coffee and socializing, and 60 minutes to hear a guest speaker


We meet at an easily accessible, midtown location in the Holy Rosary Parish Hall. The Hall entrance is between the Church and Loblaws, at 356 St. Clair Ave. W. M5P 1N4, beside the TTC St Clair West Subway, bus and streetcar station, (St Clair & Bathurst area).


Who We Are

Probus is an association of retired and semi-retired persons who join together in autonomous clubs throughout the world.

Although the emphasis in Canada today is on those of like mind or interests rather than on professional or business status for membership, the Probus name, an acronym for Pro(fessional) and Bus(iness), reflects an earlier rationale.

The basic purpose of a Probus club is to provide regular gatherings for those who, in retirement, appreciate and value opportunities to meet others in similar circumstances and of similar levels of interest.

Past membership in any service club is not a requirement for potential members of PROBUS, although Probus members are often active members of other organizations. There is no restriction on the number of members from any one vocation. There is no compulsion to attend any number of meetings.

The PROBUS Club of Toronto is in Ontario District #3, under the umbrella organization of PROBUS Canada.
