About Area 82:  

Area 82 is proudly consisted of 3 unique Clubs. Celebrating its 65th anniversary in the coming year, the Port Credit Club has a long history of distinctions and of supplying leaders to the Toastmasters communities at various levels. It’s the home club of our Immediate Past District Director, Past District Director, and numerous District Officers.  The Mississauga Sales & Marketing Club is the only club in the District that focuses on the grooming of sales & marketing talents among its vibrant membership. The weekly sales & marketing tip is one of the many unique features that the club has to offer. Chartered in 2018, the Miracle Chinese English Bilingual Club is one of its kind in our District. It provides ideal conditions for those who aspire to sharpen their communication and leadership skills in a supportive and bi-lingual environment.  


Message from Area 82 Director

Toastmasters is a proven process by which we could effectively develop ourselves in a safe, friendly, supportive, and fun environment. It is also an excellent way to grow our Emotional Intelligence (EQ) which is the cornerstone for effective interpersonal communication and leadership. Hundreds of thousands of people around the world are reaping the benefits of Toastmasters, and I would like to invite you to come join us and put “U” in the Success Formula: Toastmasters + U = EQ = Success
