Probus Club of Collingwood

The Probus Club of Collingwood is the original men’s Probus Club of the Georgian Triangle,  one of the first in Ontario, and is celebrating its 30th anniversary this October, 2017. An informative speaker each month, combined with a membership of over 180 retired and semi-retired men allows us to create a place of enjoyment and fellowship in the community, emphasizing the Probus motto:


“Our Strength is Fellowship; Our Success is Participation.”


In addition, we enjoy numerous trips and social events throughout the year, including golf, hiking, theatre, excursions, and tours of businesses throughout Ontario.


Here you will find everything you need to know about the Club for both new and old members alike.
