Welcome to Flare Events! Are you tired of online dating sites and the endless chats until you actually meet somebody? Well, let’s speed things up!

Flare Events offers speed dating & singles events in major cities across Canada with a truly unique take on the speed dating formula. Our events attract individuals who genuinely want to connect with the intention of dating. At Flare, it’s our mission to help Canadian singles forge meaningful connections through unique and engaging speed dating events. We offer in-person speed dating at local Toronto, Ottawa, Calgary and Vancouver venues with great ambiance, food, and drinks. We strive to create a relaxed atmosphere and tailor our events with games and icebreakers early on to avoid any awkward lulls.

About Flare Events

Flare Events was founded in Toronto with the idea of modernizing the speed dating formula and improving the dated concept for a better and more engaging experience. We also carefully select each venue. Our in-person speed dating events are hosted at exciting, not overpriced venues; and our team ensures they are easily accessible and have a welcoming, social atmosphere. We aim to provide singles events you’ll rave about at venues you’ll want to come back to. Currently, we operate events in Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, and Calgary for the heterosexual community but are working hard on bringing events for the LGBTQ+ community in the near future! We hope to soon bring these events across Canada to help daters build meaningful connections that can last a lifetime.

In-person speed dating events

Our in-person speed dating events run like no other. With engaging hosts, warm-up games, and maybe even a giveaway or two, we do our part to kick up the excitement in the first half. In the second half of the event, we pair the couples together and every 8 minutes cycle to the next match. After you’re done talking with our wonderful daters, hand in your scorecard and expect to hear some exciting news from our team within the next few days.


“Flare Events has honestly changed my opinion of “online dating”. I tried this on a whim with a friend of mine after we were both fed up with Tinder, Bumble…and I actually don’t regret it. It was really easy to attend and participate in, the ice breaker games were a lot of fun. It is definitely something I would recommend to those who are single and looking!”
