Hi all:  I was just made aware of a new group having their inaugural 
meeting:  The Toronto Wikipedia Meetup!

 From the blurb on the Wikipedia page:


      An Invitation From Sue Gardner

    *Dear Wikimedia Project Contributor,* I am the assistant to *Sue
    Gardner
    <https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/Sue_Gardner>, the
    Executive Director of the Wikimedia Foundation
    <https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/Wikimedia_Foundation>*,
    the organization behind Wikipedia. Sue will be in Toronto from
    February 6-8 for speaking engagement at the Schulich School of
    Business

    contributors the evening of Sunday, February 6 from 18:00-20:00. If

While the 'Meetup' in the name "Toronto Wikipedia Meetup" is used in the 
generic sense, there IS a meetup.com page for this event:

   http://toronto.technology.knowledgeworkers.org/calendar/16153427

Even if you use meetup.com be sure to add your name to the official 
attendance list on the Wikipedia page.

The Toronto Technology Knowledge Workers have had Wikipedia related 
events before, but I think this may be the start of a dedicated group of 
Toronto Wikipedians.

--Bob.
