Peterborough is a large town in the province of Ontario in southeastern Canada, located 78 miles northeast of Toronto in the Kawartha Lakes Region.

It was first settled in 1818, as a single mill. In 1825, a large group of Irish immigrants flooded the town, increasing economy and population.

Today, Peterborough is known for its quaint downtown area, lakes, waterfront activities, and for the number of large companies with headquarters here.
