Introduction:

Established early in 1998 by Spencer Lui and Colman Chan, the then named 2.5RS club of Toronto was created for local RS owners to chat, socialize and share technical knowledge about Subarus latest (and really, only) performance oriented vehicle in North America. The 2.5RS club grew, and in 2000 renamed itself as the Toronto Subaru Club. It was run by James McIntosh Jr and he opened it up to other like minded Subaru enthusiasts driving other vehicles in Subaru's lineup. After 10 years of running the club James handed the reigns over to the current Club Principal Derek Serianni, who presents to you the club as you see it today.
After countless milestones like the release of the WRX, STi and other Turbo Subarus, not to mention the Forester, Legacy, Outback, and Tribeca, the Toronto Subaru Club continues to be the #1 Subaru Club and Enthusiast forum in Canada.

The Toronto Subaru Club operates 100% not-for-profit. The Toronto Subaru Club is a community oriented club; we donate all proceeds collected to The Ronald McDonald House Charity.

We are also the host of many regional forums: Barrie, Hamilton, Burlington, Niagara, Kitchener/Waterloo, London, Sudbury, and Windsor as well we host the Toronto Legacy Club.
