Aerospace

Peterborough has taken
to the skies!

The Peterborough region has a vibrant and expanding aerospace sector. Since Prime Minister Stephen Harper opened the Peterborough Airport expansion project in 2011, over 50 million dollars has now been invested in Peterborough’s aerospace sector.

With an ecosystem of operations at and in close proximity to Peterborough’s Airport and aerospace industrial park, Peterborough is a leading base for national and international manufacturing, repair and overhaul; research and development; and training. Home to Seneca College’s groundbreaking flight training school, as well as two top-ranked post secondary institutions, Peterborough is a place where young talent comes for training.

Our Business Development Team offers support services to assist businesses with relocation and set up, supply chain and infrastructure development, as well as securing government research and development funding and loans.

It was not unusual for the larger facilities to be "branch plants", building the same products from basically the same designs as similar plants in the United States. The culture inside the plants mirrored the society outside in that there...Read More
