Hello! I grew up in Toronto and my mom still lives there.
is a site where you can put in your country, postal code and interest and it will show you all groups related. I put in a Toronto postal code and "knitting" and tons of groups came up.
I know that many yarn stores have "knit nights", like Lettuce Knit on Nassau street on wednesday (I think!). Find a yarn store close by and ask them about knit night- they will at least know where you can find one.
