The Toronto Club is a private club in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Founded in 1837 (March 20), it is Canada’s oldest private club. Its current clubhouse, located at 107 Wellington Street West (at York Street), was designed by Frank Darling and S. George Curry in 1888,[1] and opened in 1889. The building had additions and alterations between 1911-1912 by Darling and Pearson.[2] The building mixes different architectural styles and marks an important transition in Darling's career. The clubhouse was recognized as a heritage property by the City of Toronto in 1984 and by the Ontario Heritage Foundation in 2002.[1] Membership is by invitation and consists of many of Canada’s leading CEOs and professionals.
