Host City Information

Message from 2014 Host Committee

On behalf of the Lions of Multiple District "A", Ontario and Western Quebec, we are happy to invite all Lions to the 97th Lions Clubs International Convention to be held in the vibrant City of Toronto, July 4 to 8, 2014.

Toronto is situated on the north west shore of beautiful Lake Ontario located in southern Ontario, Canada.  Our Host City is the gateway to central and western Canada by virtue of its location on Lake Ontario.  The Great Lakes which begin with Lake Ontario and extend over 1600 kilometres/1000 miles into the Canadian heartland make Toronto a major worldwide transportation centre for both Great Lakes and Ocean shipping.

The City of Toronto offers an almost endless list of attractions and things to do while visiting here.  Attractions such as the city's CN Tower, magnificent harbour, sports teams and facilities such as the Air Canada Centre and the Rogers Centre together with outstanding shopping opportunities are indeed exceptional.  As well, underground, there are several kilometres of shopping in our downtown area.  Add to this fine restaurants and eateries too numerous to mention and many excellent hotels located conveniently downtown all make Toronto a place where visitors return again and again.

Toronto is a culturally diverse, vibrant, safe and clean city.

It is impossible to put into words all of the superb features of our city, rather it is truly a special place which you must personally experience when you attend our Lions Clubs International Convention this coming July 4 to 8, 2014.

The City of Toronto last hosted the Lions Clubs International Convention in 1964, fifty years ago.  Come and visit with us again, we will make you feel welcome and right at home.

Oh, and remember, "WE'RE EXPECTING YOU".
