POC Toronto

About the Toronto Chapter

With over 100 members, we’re proud to be Canada’s largest and longest standing professional organizing chapter. In1999, when professional organizing was a relatively new industry, eight organizers gathered to create an environment where professional organizers could collaborate, learn and share. This collective vision would ultimately become the catalyst for the formation of POC.

The Toronto Chapter membership catchment area includes all of the Greater Toronto Area and municipalities (Scarborough, York, East York, North York, Etobicoke, Toronto) and occasionally draws members from Mississauga and Vaughan.
