Our club was formed on January 20, 1935, with A. T. Smith as president. 

At that time the club was known as The Telephone Pioneers of America.

The location was 76 Adelaide St. W.  Toronto.

Subsequently, the club was moved to 50 Eglinton E. 5th floor.

Since 2011 the club was moved to 50 Eglinton E. ground floor.

On January 2013, the club was moved from the ground floor of 50 Eglinton Ave. E. to the 2nd floor.

Our Toronto Club President since 2003, Nancy Spence has decided to step down as of June 2017.
Her years of dedication to the Club is much appreciated, and we wish her well on her future endeavor!
