President’s Message

Dear fellow Junior League members, community partners, and friends,


On behalf of the 2023-24 Board of Directors of the Junior League of Toronto (JLT), welcome!

It is my honor and privilege to serve as President of the Junior League of Toronto, working hand in hand with the incredibly talented women in this organization and with our community partners. Since 1926, the JLT has served Toronto with our mission of advancing women’s leadership for meaningful community impact through volunteer action, collaboration, and training.


With more than 290 members, we aim to create a lasting, meaningful impact in the area of mental health with a focus on improving self-esteem in youth. We have many informative & inspiring Community Impact Events planned along with our annual fundraiser the JLT Chef’s Showcase happening Spring of 2024.


This year, we will continue our focus on the four cornerstones of our strategic plan: Impacting, Connecting, Learning, and Investing; reflecting the JLT membership of today as well as how we aspire to evolve. We are strengthening our connections with the Toronto community, with our partners, and collaborating with like-minded organizations to confront the challenges we face collectively in the areas of mental health, Human Sex Trafficking (HST), and food insecurity. Our members are steadfast in their commitment to our community and to the projects we serve.


At the Junior League, we welcome all people who identify as women that are ready to embrace our mission and share our values. We are committed to inclusive environments of diverse individuals, organizations, and communities. Consider joining us in our mission by directly impacting the communities we live in.
