District 61 is a bilingual District with over 3,000 members, spanning Eastern Ontario, Québec, and Northern New York State.
On 1958-07-01, District 61 was officially recognized by Toastmasters International. The story actually began in 1956 when a group of Canadian Toastmasters (from then District 34 in upper New York State), decided to form two all-Canadian Districts. Districts 60-P and 61-P were granted provisional status in 1957 and became fully fledged Districts one year later on 1958-07-01.
The District Mission:
We build new clubs and support all clubs in achieving excellence.
