Canadian Toy Collectors' Society

Written by Laura Brown

The Canadian Toy Collectors' Society is a hobby association, incorporated (not-for-profit) in the Province of Ontario, whose main objectives are to promote interest in the collection and display of all types of toys and related childhood memorabilia; and to acquire and maintain a collection of Canadian toys of historic importance.

Although based mainly in the Golden Horseshoe region of Ontario, Canada, the Society has members throughout Canada, the USA, Europe and Australia. Regular monthly meetings, a monthly newsletter, and a periodic journal "The Toy Collector", help members keep in touch with each other and the toy collecting hobby.

The Society runs an annual toy show "Canada's Greatest Collectors' Toy Show and Sale", and makes frequent donations to selected children's charities.
