Who We Are

There are PROBUS clubs around the world, the goal or which is to provide Fellowship, Friendship and Fun for men and women in their retirement and semi-retirement years.

PROBUS is a volunteer-based, non-profit, non-political, non-sectarian fellowship organization with over 4,000 clubs worldwide, 255 being Canadian clubs made up of over 38,000 members. PROBUS clubs are all about encouraging healthy minds and bodies and socializing with other retirees in the community.

In PROBUS you’ll find a wealth of new experiences and a much expanded social network. The opportunities abound in each club with awesome guest speakers, a broad range of interesting activities and social events, stimulating conversation and the chance to explore your community, Canada and the world with new friends.

This website supports the two PROBUS clubs in North Bay, Ontario. Scroll through our website to find out more about our clubs.

Both clubs meet monthly to hear guest speakers or hold discussions on subjects of interest and between meetings we have a number of activities and learning opportunities for a broad cross section of interests. We are not service clubs, we are  “fellowship” clubs and we are not involved in fund raising, and are non-political in nature. Get in touch with someone on either the PROBUS Club of North Bay & District’s contacts page or the Blue Sky PROBUS Club’s contacts page if you wish to be a guest at a meeting.

The PROBUS Club of North Bay & District meets on the first Wednesday of the month, from 10:00am to noon at the North Bay Shrine Club. If you are interested in joining this club please print and complete our Membership Application Form, which you can find near the bottom of our Contacts page. Instructions for delivering your application form are on the bottom of the form. Also feel free to get in touch with anybody on our Contacts page for more information.

The Blue Sky PROBUS Club meets on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at the Motherhouse at 10:00am. If you are interested in joining this club get in touch with them via the links on their Contacts page.
