Our Strength is Fellowship; Our Success is Participation.

Welcome to the
men’s Probus Club of Collingwood!

The Probus Club of Collingwood, will celebrate it’s 35th anniversary in October, 2022. 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 over 140 retired and semi-retired active men, enable us to create a place of enjoyment and fellowship in the community, emphasizing the Probus motto.
