The East York Danforth Lions Club is part of an international network of 1.3 million men and women in 202 countries who work together to answer the needs that challenge communities around the world. Internationally Lions are known for working to end preventable blindness, Lions participate in a vast variety of projects important to our community.

Beginning in 1917, the association of Lions clubs has provided millions of people with the opportunity to give something back to their communities. View LQ (Lions Quarterly Video Magazine) on the Lions News Network to see how Lions continue to make a difference everyday and everywhere.

The East York Danforth Lions Club was chartered on August 13, 1931 and is one of the longest serving Lions clubs in Toronto. Following the Lions motto "We Serve", we work tirelessly to support our communities needs. Our clubs projects range from supporting the Toronto East General Hospital cancer ward to sending children to summer camp, who otherwise would be unable to attend, and may other events throughout the year.

We invite you to explore our website. You will find information pertaining to the clubs officers, history and news of our activities in the community. The site will be updated often, so be sure to check back. If you are interested in joining the largest service organization, please view our membership page.
