As Peterborough & the Kawarthas looks to retain highly skilled talent, the region is partnering with Trent University to connect new and recent graduates with local employment opportunities, supports and work-integrated learning experiences through the Community Concierge program. 

Launched in partnership with the City of Kawartha Lakes and Peterborough & Kawarthas Economic Development, the 12-month program supports 60 multi-year partnership agreements between the university and local employers that help identify employment opportunities for new and recent Trent graduates.  

By connecting students and alumni with valuable work-integrated learning experience within the local community, they can enhance their existing skillset and graduate job-ready upon graduation, filling in-demand jobs across the region.

“This coordinated effort between government and education is a great thing for students in Kawartha Lakes. It will help us strengthen our local workforce and help graduates build their careers right in their own community.”

Mayor, City of Kawartha Lakes
