The easiest way to find clubs is going to tournaments in the area
and just asking around. I've left Toronto recently and so I've
lost track of the precise dates of tournaments there, but most
likely the easiest set of competitions to track down are the
participation matches that go on at Ryerson. Kay Auyama runs
the club there, and can tell you when there are tournaments
coming up.
MetroBlades is probably still going... Roy Shen and friends were
running a fairly tight club about two years ago.    
The 'Y' used to have an informal club... Paul Warren ran it for
ages, and then I believe it was picked up by Alex Jeffries (?)
U of T has a fencing salle... if they follow the schedule they
kept when I was there, they'll meet mondays and wednesdays
from 5 to 10 pm in the athletics building... Ken Wood is the
Maitre and I'm sure he could point you in the right direction.

there are others, but these are the ones that come to mind.

The ones left out here are the York University Club as well as a sabre
oriented club whose name escapes me.  Both of these are fine clubs,
and which one you might wish to go to depends on where your interest
lies. For epee, York. For foil, Metro Blades. For sabre, the club whose
name escapes me ( I can dig it up for you if you want it; I can also put
you in touch, e mail wise, with a really good friend at the York club -
which is, incidently, taught by a former USSR national coach, as is the
sabre club - the York coach, Zac, is the one who trained Smirnof ( sp? )
, the epeeist who was killed in '82, I think, with the broken epee
through the mask. A top notch coach, at any rate ... I'm rambling. ).
Right. I'm off.
