Peterborough Canada

This is Peterborough, the heart of Ontario

Welcome to our new web source and community website for Peterborough, Ontario, Canada. This was formerly an informational website of Peterborough, England but it has been captured by Canadians and here we are. You can also find our community page on Facebook. We are in the Central East Region of Southern Ontario about 100 KM northeast of Toronto. The City of Peterborough has a population of 80,000 and the Peterborough County total population is 135,000.  The population expands in the summer with many cottagers living seasonally on the lakes.

This website is designed for Peterborough residents and visitors.  The site was just launched on July 7, 2013.  Keep tuned for lots of good things to follow. We will be adding links to local events, businesses, community organizations, services, sights and activities. Our site does not Tweet (yet) but we do post a feed of new #Ptbo posts on Twitter for informational purposes.
