Who We Are

The Canadian Club of London has a long and distinguished history of uninterrupted service in the community since its founding July 31, 1906. During the past 114 years, the club has been host to more than 1000 Canadian and international leaders who have shared their views with enthusiastic London audiences, making the Canadian Club one of the longest-standing organizations in the city.

Our History

What We Do

Each month, from September to June, the club, along with our Official Season Sponsor and Exclusive Educational Partner, Huron University College, host a virtual, on-line event featuring prominent Canadians to speak on topical issues of national and international interest in the arts, history, business, finance, education, sports, law and politics. Virtual Events are generally held between 1pm and 2pm on a weekday and typically provide for a question and answer session at the conclusion of each. Club membership is open to anyone. Event Sponsorships are available to Businesses, Institutions, Organizations and Individuals, and Table Sponsorships are also available for anyone wishing to host a group.

President’s Message


Welcome to The Canadian Club of London, one of the regions most venerable community organizations which was founded in 1906.  The Canadian Club is all about celebrating Canada, and bringing to light stories that reflect this complex mosaic, some illuminating, some challenging, some entertaining, and all engaging.  While our mandate identifies categories such as History, the Arts, Institutions and Public Affairs, we go beyond to bring you speakers from all walks of life with unique and interesting stories to tell.


Our volunteer not-for-profit organization seeks to deliver ten monthly live events to our Members (both individual and corporate) from September to June each year, but we often add to our programming schedule when opportunity knocks.  While we encourage membership to build the Canadian Club community, all are welcome and registrations to specific events are available for purchase.  If you haven’t already done so, please review our entire website and add your name to our mailing list


Facing the current pandemic with all it’s restrictions and obstacles, the Board is proud to again put forward a full season of speakers in 2020/2021, continuing our 114 year tradition.  With the gracious assistance of Huron University College, we believe you will be impressed with the stellar lineup of topics and presenters – a summary of which is outlined in the events section of our website.


On behalf of the Board of Directors, please allow me to extend our best wishes during the Covid-19 pandemic and thank you for your continued support.  The potential health risks and financial uncertainty we all face cannot be understated or dismissed.  Canada has weathered such crises in the past, as has The Canadian Club of London since its inception.  We do so again as a community, caring for each other with compassion and respect.  Our thoughts are with you and we hope you enjoy our lineup of speakers this year.
