Welcome to the Toronto Outdoor Club!

Free to join, and open to any adult in Canada, the TOC brings people together in a fun, friendly and inviting atmosphere. We strive to offer a variety of events, with some geared for beginners, some more challenging activities, and lots of 'somewhere in the middle' stuff. And, we attempt to keep events as low-cost as possible. A majority of our events take place in and around southern Ontario, but occasionally we visit our neighboring provinces or travel further away from home.

This is a great time to get out and meet other outdoor enthusiasts in the Toronto area. Are you traveling? Check out our sister clubs in Calgary, Edmonton, Atlanta, Maryland and, the most recent addition, Vancouver Region. Tell your outdoorsy family and friends, and if you're ever in their neighborhood, look them up!

Yes, our events are busy and they often fill up very quickly, but sign up for the waiting list. It is very common in the week prior to the event for there to be significant turnover. Life happens and people have to modify their plans (or the weather modifies them!) and the event coordinators make every effort to add members from the waiting list to the event to ensure as many people get out to enjoy themselves as possible. Add yourself to the waiting list, you'll be surprised at how often you actually get on an event!

The TOC is 100% volunteer run. Get more general information, see our membership stats, and read our faqs for more information. Still not satisfied? Contact us with any further questions you may have.
