Peterborough Community Savings is now offering a Micro-Finance Program in conjunction with their partner Alterna Savings. These could open up growth opportunities for your small food or farm business! The program offers loans from $1,000 to $25,000 and can be used for equipment and operating costs (not for purchasing land). You will need an up to date business plan and cash flow projection, as well as other documents to successfully apply for it-- and other financing opportunities as well!

Over the three week Biishkaa program, students are acclimatized to both Trent University and Peterborough as a way of acknowledging that many of the youth are leaving their communities for the first time. Tutors and mentors are provided to the students, and they are introduced to the Elders in residence. As a way of immersing the students in their local Indigenous community outings to the Petroglyphs, Black Oak Savannah at Alderville First Nations, and Curve Lake also take place. Adventures and Understanding is a program of the Rotary Club in which Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth come together to share their cultures.
