Located just over an hour northeast of Toronto in the Kawarthas lake region of Ontario, the Greater Peterborough Area is comprised of the municipalities of the City of Peterborough and several townships and villages within the County of Peterborough.

Although the City of Peterborough with a population of approximately 76,200  provides a centre for many major services, the catchment area of approximately 220,000 in total is served by the Peterborough area medical community.  Complimenting the area are the many township areas within the County of Peterborough where agriculture, tourism and selected industries enhance the fabric of the whole area. This diversity within such close proximity provides a wide variety of options in which to work, live and play. 

In the height of the tourism season the population expands and becomes very dynamic and even more active.

The Peterborough region offers its citizens access to the widest array of educational opportunities as well as a very comprehensive level of medical services. In the Greater Peterborough Area there are public and separate elementary and secondary school systems, private schools, private religious schools, Sir Sandford Fleming College and Trent University. Few Ontario communities of this size have such a wide spectrum of educational opportunities.

As a "preferred community of choice" Peterborough prides itself as being a safe and environmentally conscious community. It is developing and evolving from a major industrial employment centre to a diversified skill-based centre for employment opportunities and with a steady, measured plan for growth, has many of the amenities of a larger urban centre within a smaller, more friendly context.
It should also be noted that in our community's broader area, an abundance of arts, cultural and recreation opportunities exist. Also, there is a significant number and variety of restaurants to satisfy the tastes of most people. As a family oriented community, child care services are very much a part of the fabric of our social infrastructure and very accessible.
