District 6 is made up of over 290 corporate, community, advanced, and specialty Toastmasters Clubs across portions of Minnesota (excluding some northwestern counties) and the central Ontario, Canada. More than 5,000 members enjoy the benefits of Toastmasters from rural areas to the suburbs to the metropolitan communities.
District 6 is divided into 10 Divisions and roughly 60 Areas. An Area can encompass 3 to 7 Clubs. A Division may have from 4 to 7 Areas.
District 6 first became a District on December 31, 1937 (some documents note it as July 1/1937). At that time, there were three Clubs. Today, the District is geographically smaller but larger in numbers of clubs and members.
