The Kiwanis Club of Casa Loma, originally known as the Kiwanis Club of West Toronto, earned its name having saved the abandoned Casa Loma in 1936 and turned it into a heritage tourist attraction through 75 years of careful stewardship.  The Club used its management fees to fund an extensive program of community services.  In 2013, the Liberty Entertainment Group gained operation of this estate, and established a very supportive working relationship with the Kiwanis Club of Casa Loma.

Our service projects are guided by the Kiwanis International motto, "Serving the children of the world".  The Kiwanis Club of Casa Loma donates to and volunteers at the Grange Festival, the Children's Peace Theatre, the Kiwanis Music Festival, the Daily Bread Food Drive and the Staples Back to School Program.

The Kiwanis Club of Casa Loma initiated the growth of Key Clubs in Toronto high schools.  In our Service Leadership Program, we mentor 4 Key Clubs in high schools to volunteer in their communities and to learn, “to serve is to lead", at Key Leader weekends.  Ten Key Club scholarship recipients are honoured at our scholarship lunch at Casa Loma.  Overall, we sponsor 21 leadership and music scholarships and awards.

One of our longstanding partnerships has been with the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health providing outings for the patients and their caregivers. To further heighten mental health awareness, we are sponsoring the Lovely Spring Run to fundraise for CAMH.

Since the Club's chartering on July 26, 1921, the membership has undergone many changes. However, what remains constant is the respect, fellowship and generous spirit of our members.
