Public Meetings


PETERBOROUGH HISTORICAL SOCIETY MONTHLY MEETINGS.  The monthly meetings and lectures are on the third Tuesday of the month; September, October, November, January, February, March and May at 7:30 p.m., Lion’s Community Centre, 347 Ashburnham Street.  Note that we are returning to the Lion’s Centre for the 2018-2019 season.  We had planned to use the Peterborough Library but will be unable to do so because of the acoustics problem in the refurbished community room.

THE NEW CANADIAN CENTRE AND DIVERSITY IN PETERBOROUGH Tuesday, 15 January 2019, Lion’s Community Centre, 347 Burnham Street, 7:30 p.m. All welcome.

Issues of immigration are very much in the news today, whether immigrants are refugees, economic migrants or reunited family members. Hajni Hos, Executive Director of the New Canadian Centre, will explain the history and work of the Centre and its contribution to the increasing diversity of the region. The history of Peterborough, like that of Canada writ large, is rooted in the stories of migrants. In the decades since the Second World War, many migrants have come from more diverse regions of the world.  In Peterborough, the New Canadian Centre reflects the recent evolution of newcomers.
