How to download / view a meeting list for your district

Did you know that you can quickly view or download a list of active meetings in your district from this website? To find this page, navigate to the ‘About Meetings’ section using the main menu in the top of any page and select the page ‘PDF Meeting Lists per District’. Here is a direct link to go there now:

https://al-anon.alateen.on.ca/meeting-frontpage/meeting-prints/

The meeting information in these lists is kept in sync with the information on the website. Although you can download and print these meeting lists, they change often, especially in Covid times, so do check the date-stamps of the documents to make sure you always have the latest version.

Besides the meeting lists per district, the above page also contains additional lists:

-meetings in the GTA (combines multiple districts)
-Alateen meetings
-Speaker meetings

Below is a screenshot of a random meeting list:


Do you want your event listed on the website? Please use the online form!

Processing events is a manual process that takes about 10 minutes, provided notifications are received via the Event online upload form (see above button). If the information has to be extracted from an email or non-accessible PDF attachment, it takes much longer, depending on how much manual data entry is required and whether all details are complete and clear.

The upload form ensures we have everything we need, including a PDF of your event-flyer. If you have more than one attachments, combine them in a zip-archive and upload them together. Microsoft Word and Powerpoint are not accepted as format for flyers or other uploads, because they can be carriers of viruses or other malicious software.

District Information on Flyers
It would be greatly appreciated if you would include the name and description of your District region on your flyer, so that others who are interested in attending can easily check where the event is located. To find which District your Group belongs to, consult the District Information page in the ‘About Meetings’ section of this website:

Thank you for your cooperation!
