Men's Sheds Ontario formation meetings began in early 2022 to answer the need for a provincial voice for Men's Sheds in Ontario.
It's still early days for MSO. But, we have figured out who we want to be and, just as importantly, who we don't want to be or do.
With representatives from over 70% of sheds in Ontario the MSO is a small organization run by volunteers. There is no empire building here, with no paid employees and alas no money to operate… but you can help with that.

This is a Provincial Association so we have reserved space for representation from the far corners of the Province. Zoom makes it work.
