Our Strength is Fellowship; Our Success is Participation.

Welcome to the
mens Probus Club of Collingwood!

The Probus Club of Collingwood, celebrated  its 36th anniversary in October, 2023. It is the original men’s Probus Club of the Georgian Triangle, and one of the first in Ontario. Informative speakers each month combined with a membership of retired and semi-retired active men, enables us to create a place of enjoyment and fellowship in the community, emphasizing the Probus motto. We enjoy numerous trips and social events throughout the year, including golf, biking, theatre, excursions, and tours of businesses throughout Ontario.
