    Hi, are there any meetings in or around Toronto?
    If not how do I go about starting one, are there guidelines or a format of how a meeting should run?

    I just clicked on the link above “hearing voices in Canada website and forum” and it said the website is currently Expired… would have been nice to have this resource in Canada.

    Its mostly pretty old.

    Also I’ve started a simple site for Canada the one listed above is defunct: it will be a simple hub to share info about what you’re doing where you live..

    Toronto’s group is coming up to is sixth birthday.

    If you have info to share I can add it.
