Our club began in 1955 and is one of more than 9,000 Toastmasters clubs worldwide.
Downtown Toronto Toastmasters' members are primarily professionals from a range of industries but we welcome a variety of people including university students.
Toastmasters is a non-profit organization that offers a series of educational manuals designed to systematically and progressively develop members' speaking and leadership skills. The first manual, Communications and Leadership, contains 10 modules that guide you through specific speeches. After each speech, a fellow member evaluates your speech with positive and constructive feedback. Each of the subsequent 15 manuals contains five speaking assignments.
A 12-month membership costs $195, which includes all your Toastmaster Materials. Please be aware that our club also charges a $5 meeting fee to both members and guests.
