Peterborough (pronounced Pee-ter-bor-row) is a city located on the Otonabee River in (Central-Eastern) southern Ontario, approximately 125 kilometres northeast of Toronto. Named in honour of Peter Robinson, an early Canadian politician who oversaw the first major immigration to the area, Peterborough still experiences a high degree of immigration. However, todays immigration it is largely seasonal in nature, as Peterborough is well-known as the gateway to the Kawarthas, “cottage country,” a large recreational region of the province, one in which cottagers and visitors alike flock to each summer.
That being said, Peterborough is much more than a cottage destination. The Greater Peterborough Area is a unique community known for its exceptional quality of life and beautiful settings, in the Kawarthas tourism region. This is a city that has everything, including: a host of recreational opportunities, a rich and diverse industrial, commercial and agricultural base, quality health care as well as excellent educational opportunities (including two post-secondary institutions).
With a population of 135,000 as of the 2006 Census, the GPA has become the regional centre for East Central Ontario, drawing from a market population of over 350,000. Furthermore, Peterborough’s proximity to other major markets in Canada and the United States and combined with an effective transportation system that includes the largest commercial airport between Toronto and Ottawa and four lane access to the Greater Toronto Area, make Peterborough an unparalleled setting as a business location.
