Kiwanis became international with the addition of the Kiwanis club of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, in 1916. This summer the Kiwanis International Convention was hosted in Toronto, Canada to celebrate their 100 years as part of Kiwanis. (Remember: the Kiwanis organization was started in January of 1915)

Besides districts throughout the United States and Canada, Kiwanis Clubs can also be found in the following countries throughout the world: Andean & Central America, Australia, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand-South Pacific, Philippine Luzon, Philippine South, Taiwan, Korea, Austria, Belgium-Luxembourg, Czech Republic and Slovakia, April 2014 3 France-Monaco, Germany, Iceland-Faroes, Italy-San Marino, Netherlands, Norden, Poland, and Switzerland-Liechtenstein.
