Peterborough Immigration Portal

Portal bannerThe Peterborough Immigration Portal is an all-inclusive web resource designed to showcase why Peterborough is a good place to live, study, work or invest in business. The resource information is designed to attract and retain immigrants and newcomers to the Peterborough area. The Peterborough Immigration Portal is a gateway to information a family may need to get settled in the community. In addition to basic information, the Portal also provides real stories from persons who have gone through the process of finding their way through Peterborough’s employment, education, and daily life living. It provides important dates of key community events celebrated throughout the year and connects people to resources they may need.

There are over 35 Community Immigration Portals across the province of Ontario. With funding from the Ontario Ministry of Citizenship, the Peterborough Immigration Portal was developed by the City of Peterborough in collaboration with the Peterborough Immigration Partnership (PIP) as well as numerous other local organizations, making this project a truly collaborative and community based initiative.
