*** Enjoy Life, Dream Big & Live with Passion ***

The Toronto Friends Network

If you enjoy friendship, activities, music, arts,

networking, socializing, parties,

learning, sharing, inspiration, personal/professional development,

travel, culture, language, and/or some fun, 

and you like them for free,

this is the group for you!!

* A community is great because of its members, and we need you to make it great!

We live in an ever-shrinking world, where the technologies and transportation systems make it easier than ever to connect people from every corner of the world. We also have the fortune to live in a quality and vibrant city that is home to people of diverse backgrounds and life experience. The Toronto Friends Network gives you an opportunity to experience some of the many international cultures that Toronto hosts, to share your knowledge of cultural heritage, interests/hobbies or professional expertise with other members of the group, and make new friends while doing so.

The mission of this group is as implied by the name of the group--we'd like to provide good company as well as a positive and safe environment for members to experience things that, for whatever reasons, you longed for but weren't able to do before. You'll also get to know things that you can do and enjoy in Toronto through the meetups proposed by your peers. It is also a hope of our group to promote cross-cultural dialogues, sharing, understanding, and peer supports through a variety of local activities and events, as well as international trips.

But we (organizers) are few and you are many, and this means that to work toward these goals we need the proactive participation and supports from at least some members of the community. This group is unique because of our members, and we look forward to meeting you and facilitate the meetup ideas you propose.

* Any Member Can Schedule a Meetup at This Group for Free:) 

This is a forum in Toronto where people get to discover the city together in a fun and safe environment. People who are familiar with the city are of course welcome to join us and even provide meeting ideas. Newcomers to Toronto (from overseas) are also more than welcome to join us and explore Toronto and Canada together!

We aim at building a safe and friendly community with people currently residing in Toronto or visiting from overseas. You don't need to have experience overseas or be able to speak English to join this group. Every friendly person is welcome in this group! (Including people local in Toronto or (originally) from other parts of the world.) 

If you happen to be traveling to Toronto, you are welcome to join our group and events as well:) If you are currently overseas but have a plan to visit or stay in Toronto in the near future, still welcome join the group.


Dear friends,

This group is part of an effort for establishing a network of global meetups, currently being fast deployed in major cities worldwide, including London, Paris, San Francisco, New York, LA, Toronto, Montreal, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Shanghai... And more to come!

It's our agenda to build up a global community (in the format of meetup groups at this stage), where participants get to mix and mingle in a safe and friendly environment, have fun and adventures together or establish long-lasting friendship and fully enjoy what the city's got to offer. 

We believe that this service can be offered for free, and we need your participation and encouragement to make it happen. 

If you are fond of our vision, welcome to join and check it out. Invite your friends who may be interested. We appreciate your supports, volunteering, and valuable inputs, but nothing is mandatory except for mutual respects to other members in the community.
