Canadian Club of Lake Chapala




The Club provides a little Canadiana along the north shore of Lake Chapala in Jalisco, Mexico.

This is the largest group of Canadians living outside Canada on a full or part time basis outside of Florida, USA. It is estimated 6,000 to 10,000 Canadians visit or live here depending on the time of year.

You are welcome to visit any of the areas listed from the drop down menus above.

In addition to the Speaker’s program the club hosts, from September through April, other events include Canadian Thanksgiving Dinner, a Christmas Party and Canada Day Celebrations.

In addition there is a Travel Program which regularly takes members to interesting places within Mexico, Central and South America.

Members receive e-mail notices of all our programs. In addition an advertisement appears in the Guadalajara Reporter two weeks before the program.

Tom will speak on the sigficant changes he has seen in the 20 plus years at
Lakeside and also some insights into antiquing.


Tom was born in Keokuk, Iowa in 1947, first studied architecture and finally did an understudy with a German Chef from 1969-71 (including a summer stint as Chef at the Minaki Lodge in Ontario 1971), moved to California in 1973 in 1976. He opened his first "antique" type store (it was Art Deco and Oriental rugs), in 1983. Tom conducted a million dollar estate sale for the last heir to the Steven Birch Fortune and from there he came to Mexico in 1985, first to Yelapa then to Ajijic in 1993.

We will also have our AGM with the nomination and
election of the new Board for the 2015-2016 year.
