Metro Speakers Toastmasters is one of the most dynamic and award winning toastmaster club in Burnaby/Vancouver, BC. We have been around since 1980, and it continues to grow. Our members are not only here to practice public speaking and leadership skills, but also to make new friends. Our members have a diverse range of experience, and we welcome speakers from all levels. At a typical meeting, we have around 20-30 attendees, making our meetings exciting, fun and educational.


From our 36 years experience and survey, following are 9 top reasons guests visit us each week:

  1. It’s inspirational.
  2. It is fun.
  3. Guests are always free.
  4. Help other people develop their communication skills.
  5. Develop your confidence.
  6. Make new friends.
  7. Become a leader.
  8. Master your presentation skills.
  9. Become a professional speaker.


Evaluation skill is the best pay skill in business. At our meetings, you will have many opportunities to practice your analytical skills, and give positive feedbacks. It is a fine art that could take one entire lifetime to perfect it.

Table Topic

Members will be invited to do a 2 minutes impromptu speech on a topic they will be given on the spot. This is where we get to squeeze our creative juice. It’s the perfect skill you need to master for any job interview.

Following is one of our table topic example by our very own creative genius and long time member Ian Su.

TED X Star Wars

There is no instructor in a Toastmasters meeting. Instead, members evaluate one another’s presentations. This feedback process is a key part of the program’s success.

We also have a mentorship program which pairs a new member up with a senior member to get a great start on the Metro Speakers Toastmasters journey.
