The City of Peterborough was incorporated in 1905. With a population of around 80,000 people, Peterborough is the 70th largest City in Canada. Peterborough is located North East of Toronto and is commonly referred to as the gateway to cottage country for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of bigger cities such as Toronto and Kingston. Peterborough is located in one of Ontario's premier lake and boating districts which is called the Kawarthas. The Kawarthas provide a spot for recreational boating, camping, cottages and other great vacation and lifestyle opportunities.
Peterborough is also the home of Goldfinger Law's Eastern Ontario office. Located at 459 George St N in downtown Peterborough, our office is easily accessible for all of our clients in Peterborough, the Kawarthas, Lindsay, Cobourg, Millbrook, Port Perry and the rest of Eastern Ontario. Goldfinger Law can be reached toll free to our Peterborough office at 1-877-730-1777.
Peterborough is home to Trent University, one of the smallest Universities in Ontario. It's also home to Fleming College which boasts two campuses in the City of Peterborough.
Peterborough's largest employer is the Peterborough Regional Health Centre and the Kawartha Pines Ridge District School Board. Peterborough's largest private sector employer is General Electric, which has given Peterborough the nickname the Electric City. The Quaker Oats Company (Pepsi Foods) also has a large factory in Peterborough, located along the Otonabee River. Peterborough is also a major shopping centre for cottage country, boasting three shopping malls such as Portage Place, Lansdowne Place and Peterborough Square. There's also a WalMart and a Costco in Peterborough for those bargain hunters out there. Who would have thought that such a small City could offer so much, along with a picturesque city scape, and great work life balance as well. Peterborough is a great place to work, live, relax, play and retire.
