Transition Town Peterborough - Proud To Be Canada‘s First Transition Town!

Fred Irwin, Founder

By tapping into the collective creativity of citizens, we can design healthier ways to live that recognize the limits of our planet.

The Transition Town model is based on permaculture design practices considered vital to the long term success of the movement.

Transition Town Peterborough was founded as a response to the triple E pressures on environment, energy and the economy.

We can‘t wait for governments. We need to act as a community now!

Michael Bell, First Director


Transition Town Peterborough (TTP) is an all volunteer, non-profit organization focused on reducing our community-wide dependence on fossil fuels while increasing local resilience and self-sufficiency in food, water, energy, culture and wellness with economic localization. With a focus on community building, TTP is made possible by ordinary citizens working toward positive change, and is shaped and guided by all who are able to participate, in whatever capacity they can.

We seek to create as well as to connect, building new models of grassroots transformation while helping to bring existing groups and individuals together to work towards the common goal of resilience in the face of fragile systems vulnerable to economic, political and natural forces.
