The Toronto Aquarium Society is for new and experienced aquarium hobbyists who want to exchange experiences, and learn from various aquatic expects in a relaxing environment. Established in 1964, as Willowdale Aquarium Society, the Toronto Aquarium Society is a member of the Canadian Association of Aquarium Clubs.


Our Meetings

We meet on the second Wednesday of each month (excluding July and August) at rotating locations around the city 7:30pm. Our meeting location rotates every three months in an effort to create awareness in different parts of the city. Check out our Upcoming Events page for the latest information on meeting locations, dates, and topics.

Our meetings are relaxed, informal, and family friendly with the goal to gain a better understanding of our hobby by sharing experiences with each other, learning from a speaker, or working on various aquarium projects.

Every meeting includes a question and answer time and a mini-auction to buy and sell fish, plants, and related equipment.
