Hamilton & District Aquarium Society
1 member Ontario
Website: "hdas.ca" Before the Second World War an aquarium society was in existence in Hamilton. The exact time during which it functioned is not known but magazines of the time do suggest that it was flourishing as early as the mid thirties. We assume that the war caused the end of the club. After the war, we believe about 1950, the present Hamilton & District Aquarium Society (H&DAS), was started and has continued ever since without interruption. The society has held its monthly meetings in a variety of locations such as Dom Polski (just off Barton Street), the Ottawa Street “Y”, the old Jewish Community Center at Sanford & Delaware (no longer there), the Firemen’s’ Hall on Concession and our present meeting place, the Church of the Resurrection. The H&DAS was one of the founding members of the Canadian Association of Aquarium Clubs (CAOAC), and Hamilton members have served on the CAOAC Executive & Committees regularly since the beginning Our club has been host to five of the annual CAOAC conventions. For the last 30 years or so the Society has held an annual show open to the public. For a number of years this was a week long affair in which many large setups were displayed. In recent years for various reasons the show has been a one day display in conjunction with an auction. We have also taken part in a number of other events over the years including the Mum Show and Aquafest. From time to time the club has arranged other activities for its members. These include things such as Home Shows, trips to public aquaria, live food hunts, summer picnics & pet shop tours.

Windsor Cichlid & Catfish Group
1 member Ontario
Windsor Cichlid & Catfish Group Website: "windsorcichlidgroup.proboards.com/" The Windsor Cichlid & Catfish Group was started as an idea by which a few fish friends, who were interested in cichlids and catfish, could have get-togethers, hang out, attend fish events/auctions, organize group orders and primarily have FUN. We launched a ProBoards Forum and Facebook Group where we could hang out online. Not long after, several other hobbyists were interested in the same ideals and also joined the family. Lo and behold the WCCG soon gravitated from being a small group of friends to a larger group of friends and ultimately a bonafide aquarium club with a burgeoning membership hailing from several cities and towns within the province of Ontario and a few neighboring US states. The Windsor Cichlid & Catfish Group officially launched with its first meeting on April 23, 2016 in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. There was a solid turnout for an inaugural meeting and we were able to share the vision for the new club. The club is hoping to be involved with the following: •Host Monthly Meetings •Club Events •Participate in Regional/National/International Events •Breeders Award Program •Newsletter •Summer Social •Group Orders •Fishroom Tours •Sponge Exchange •Fish Store Visits •Auction The Current Board of Directors consist of the following: •Jay Gannon •Mike Newton (CAOAC) •Jason Reding, CA (Treasurer) •Director: Open Position •Director: Open Position We are still searching for a permanent meeting place at which we can host guest speakers and hold regular club meetings. We're also looking for two additional volunteers to sit on the Board of Directors. If you would like to volunteer or get involved with the club please contact us via the WCCG forum or WCCG Facebook Group. We're looking forward to a successful year of fun filled activities and events. Jay

The Montreal Aquarium SocieT wishes to welcome all new members!

Saskatoon Aquarium Society
1 member Saskatchewan
February 2010 marks the 40th anniversary of the Saskatoon Aquarium Society. Website: "saskatoonaquariumsociety.weebly.com" It began as a group of eleven people who decided to form a club dedicated to the aquarium hobby. The first meeting took place in February 1970, and was held in a private home. Before long, a more formal meeting time and place was established. The Bessborough Hotel was chosen as its first location. Meetings were held on the last Sunday of each month at 1:30 p.m. By autumn of the same year, a constitution had been proposed and accepted. The Nekton (our quarterly Publication) and the Breeder's Award Program were started; a club library was established. In early 1973, the club had to find a new meeting place. For a short time, it was based at the downtown library. The next move was to St. Thomas Moore College, where it remained for the next 16 years. The first Public Home Show was held in 1977. The tradition continues until present with Home Shows each year and Public Shows every two years. In March 1989, the club moved the meeting site to St. Timothy's Church Hall. This was the steady location until late 2009, when St. Timothy's Church changed ownership. The meetings are now held at Faith River Church 2625 Preston Avenue South at 2:00 p.m., on the last Sunday of each month. The club is very active, with both guests and regular members attending. Along with the very successful auction, there is usually a guest speaker presenting a variety of aquarium hobby topics. The club is a colourful one, with members specializing in many aspects of the hobby. We are currently in an expansion phase. Our new Website/Forum has been launched, and the number and diversity of hobbyists who attend is growing. This is an exciting time for old and new members alike. Come down and check us out! We welcome any Aquarium Hobbyist to join! It's a great way to meet others in the hobby and to make new friends who share a common interest.
