About us

  • Are you looking for an opportunity to discuss thought-provoking topics with interesting people?

  • Are you looking to enhance your public speaking, critical thinking, and communication skills?

  • Would you like to meet new friends, share ideas, and consider different points of view?


If so, the Toronto Debating Society invites you to join us for a stimulating evening of discourse, debating and fun.


We are a non-profit community organization comprised of people interested in words, ideas and discussion. We meet on alternate Tuesday evenings, from September to May, to tackle issues suggested by our members.


Our members do not necessarily debate their own feelings and beliefs.

No experience necessary

We welcome members and guests of all ages and backgrounds. Public speaking or debating experience is not necessary.


Debating is a great way to develop speaking skills which you will find useful in all areas of your life. Join us to learn how to debate, expand your way of thinking, meet new people and consider different points of view.


Learn by watching. listening and observing debaters in action - then try it for yourself. Participating in Parliamentary debates is a great way to organize your thoughts, prepare research, construct an argument and think on your feet. it also instills the merits of team work.
