Join Rotary and Make A Difference

Join Rotary’s 1.4 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.


Your time, energy, and a passion to improve your world are all you need to get involved with Rotary.

Become one of Rotary’s people of action or explore the many opportunities we have for anyone — whatever your age or interest — who wants to improve lives in communities near and far. While Rotary clubs are grounded in the same values, no two are the same, because each community has its own unique needs. At club meetings in communities across the globe, our members come together to strengthen their connections to friends and neighbors and their commitment to improving lives.

Why Should I Join?

Not only does Rotary offer its members hundreds of ways to get involved and give back both locally and internationally; being a Rotarian also means we are constantly learning, meeting new people, and developing life-long friendships. 

Who can join?

We’re looking for people who want to give back to their communities. Though our focus is on and are events are within Etobicoke, there is no requirement to live or work within it. Rotary clubs accept new members by invitation.

What’s expected of me?

As a club member, you will be asked to:

  • Pay club dues

  • Attend meetings and events

  • Use your professional skills and talents to make a difference

How can I become a member?

To help us determine if our club is right for you, we’ll ask you a few questions about yourself and your interests. Then we’ll discuss and present our recommendation to the board who, upon approval, will extend you an invitation to join our club.

What are the benefits?

Becoming a Rotary member connects you with a diverse group of professionals who share your drive to give back. Through regular meetings and events, you’ll:

  • Discuss our community’s needs and develop creative ways to meet them

  • Connect with other leaders who are changing the world

  • Expand your leadership and professional skills

  • Catch up with good friends and meet new ones

Rotaract and Interact clubs

If you’re between the ages of 12 and 18, you may be interested in joining an Interact club, a service club for youth.

If you’re a young professional, at least 18 years old, you may be interested in joining a Rotaract club. Like Rotary clubs, Rotaract and Interact clubs give their members the chance to make friends, develop leadership skills, and create positive change.
