Burnaby Mountain Toastmasters is a public speaking club serving Simon Fraser University and the greater Burnaby community. We offer programs and services to help members of our communities gain valuable public speaking and leadership skills through our affiliation with Toastmasters International.

Experience is not necessary to join Toastmasters. We have members with varying levels of experience, and we are all here to help each other improve our public speaking, presentation, and leadership skills.

Meeting and Contact Information

  • Simon Fraser University (Burnaby Mountain campus) every Wednesday night at 6:30 p.m to 8:30 p.m. Check the agenda below for the room.
  • If you are interested in joining us, just come to our meeting as described above.  You do not need to be a member, SFU student, or make any appointments to be a guest at our meetings.
  • Guests looking for information on joining Burnaby Mountain Toastmasters are welcome to e-mail us to let us answer any questions: bmtm-info at sfu.ca

YouTube Speech Archive


Many guests and members have expressed a desire to view other people’s videos. The purpose of this site is to:

  • Create an archive of all speeches, past and present
  • Allow guests and members to learn from one another
  • Allow access to video any time, anywhere

This is a great learning tool, which we hope will enhance the experience of the club. Don’t think that just because you’re a beginner, you can’t participate! Beginners also have a lot to contribute to this project, and it will be a remarkable experience to see your learning skills grow!

Key things to know:

  • The video has no embedding, no commenting, no rating, and no video responses. This ensures that this is a repository of videos for learning purposes, nothing more.
  • If at any time you wish for a video to be take down, simply email us at bmtm-info at sfu.ca
  • We will ALWAYS ask for your permission before we upload any video.

Please help us make this project possible! It’s only possible if everybody participates, and the more people add their videos, the more everyone will benefit!
