About PROBUS Toronto

Who We Are

PROBUS is an association of 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. 

Our Objectives

PROBUS emphasizes that its clubs:
  • Be simple in structure.
  • Be free from constraints and obligations of service clubs.
  • Involve members at a minimum cost.
  • Be directed to providing fellowship of acquaintance and learning opportunities.
  • Seek members who are compatible with one another.
