What we're about

Hello to all members of Bucket List Toronto,

By now you have all been informed that Peter “Dutch” Schouten, who started this group so many years ago, passed away suddenly in his Toronto home at the age of 53 on Wednesday March 27th 2019.

Other than his children, I think Bucket List Toronto was his greatest love. It brought such joy to him to help people do amazing things with other incredible people. Dutch was wacky. Dutch laughed out loud. Dutch was a beacon of fun and adventure. You couldn’t help but laugh and love with him.

As well as being a close personal friend, I worked with Dutch on numerous BLT events over the years – and I too find great joy in getting people together to do amazing things. It is his family’s wish to keep this group going to honour him and to continue this great thing he started. I (along with a couple other key members) will do our best to make him proud and keep the fun going!

We are all devastated by the loss of this amazing man, but we hope to keep his spirit alive by enjoying every second of our time on this earth. Look out for updates and new events, as we get them planned.

Thanks for being such a big and important part of Dutch’s life and in his words - It's All Happening.

Maria (and Chris and Danielle!)

“When I eventually leave this world, I want to be known as the person who lived, not the person that died.” - Peter “Dutch” Schouten


Dutch's original message:

Please join us in creating a life we are happy we lived, not a life that passed us by. Join us in finally turning those “I want to do that” into “I've done that”. I started this group because my friends stopped doing fun stuff but I wanted to continue living life to the fullest.

Does this sound familiar?

Question: “So what did you do this weekend?” Answer: “Not much”

Wouldn’t it be nice to say “I went there, I did this and I saw that” all with a great group of people that have the same lust for life as you do. How many times have you looked back on a day and realize that you wasted it away... never able to get that time back again.

Everyone has those grand bucket list items that cost a fortune to pull off, like setting foot on each continent or climbing the pyramids but what about the ones we can do right here in our city. In addition to bucket list items, we will also be doing many other activities in and around the Toronto area to get us out of the house and meeting great people. biking, hiking, skating, tobogganing, movies, dinners, drinks, live music etc. etc.

This group isn’t so much about goals to be ticked off but an outline taking shape of a life well lived.

When I eventually leave this world I want to be known as the person who lived, not the person that died.

See you soon. Dutch
