I have been looking for Anarchist or Leftist groups in my area but haven't found any close enough, so I came here to see if anyone knows of any groups I might've missed. I'm located in the Greater Toronto Area and I am looking for groups specifically in the Vaughan/Richmond Hill/Markham area. So far all I've found was a FNB group in downtown Toronto which is a little too far for me, and an Anarchist book reading club in Hamilton, which is definitely too far for me.

Does anyone here know of any groups near me, specifically Vaughan/Richmond Hill/Markham? I know the location is pretty specific but that's only because I want to be in a group I can actively work in instead of working only a few times a year when I can spend the day downtown. Many thanks if anyone can help!

Hey :-) So this raddle account is tied to North Shore Counter-Info (, an anarchist counter-info site for Southern Ontario. It's a good place to look to see what's happening in the anarchist space. We will help publicize initiatives you take on an anarchist basis.

There's nothing stable up in Vaughan/Markham/Richmond Hill area that I'm aware of. Your best bet is the York University area. There are lots of interesting people involved in Jane and Finch Action Against Poverty, for instance, and you could reach out to the PIRG on campus: though that will get you broad left at best.

In terms of other areas, there is an IWW chapter in Barrie, if that's easier than downtown Toronto.

Hamilton is a lot more than a reading group. There is the region's only anarchist social centre there, The Tower, so a lot of anarchists from different towns pass through and they would likely also help you with anything you wanted to start.

Toronto is tricky, but the Toronto Anarchist Reading Group has been meeting once a week for years and Rising Tide Toronto is a great group of people.

You could always try to get a group together. start a book club or something.
