Our Mission

The Toronto Entomologists' Association (T.E.A.) is a non-profit educational and scientific organization formed to promote interest in insects, to encourage co-operation among amateur and professional entomologists, to educate and inform non-entomologists about insects, entomology and related fields, to aid in the preservation of insects and their habitats and to issue publications in support of these objectives.

The TEA's constitution is provided here. It was last updated in February 1996.
