This new vision captures our ambition of qualifying as many clubs as possible for an award this year as per the Distinguished Club Program.

District Success 

Our District receives recognition from the province and many municipalities year after year for the impact Toastmasters has brought to British Columbia. As a result, February is now recognized as Toastmasters month.

There are 7 divisions spanning multiple municipalities within District 96. These include: Vancouver, Burnaby, Tri-Cities area, southern Sunshine Coast, Squamish, Whistler, "everything north of Kamloops in British Columbia” and Whitehorse in the Yukon. Each Division is typically divided into 4 to 6 Areas.
