Toastmasters District 86 serves the heartland of Ontario from Sault Ste Marie in the north to Welland in the south, from Sarnia in the west to Markham in the east - and all communities in between - except Toronto.  Created in 2008, District 86 has over 220 Clubs with over 4,500 members.  Our clubs include community clubs, corporate clubs, university / college clubs, government clubs, and bilingual clubs.

John Ribeiro, DTM says: "Back in 2008 I was terrified of speaking in front of people, and today I have conquered that fear with help from my Toastmaster friends. A big thank you goes out to all of you [District 86 Toastmasters] for helping me attain the title of Distinguished Toastmaster."
