The Kiwanis Club of
Casa Loma

Celebrating 100 years of
service in 2021

The Kiwanis Club of Casa Loma, originally known as the Kiwanis Club of West Toronto, earned its name for saving the abandoned Casa Loma in 1937 and turning it into one of the premier heritage tourist attractions in the City of Toronto.Β  For 74 years, the Club cared for Casa Loma and it used a portion of its management fees to fund an extensive program of community services.

Our service projects are guided by the Kiwanis International motto, β€œServing the children of the world”. In 2021, the Club is celebrating its 100 years of service.
