Peterborough is a town situated on the Otonabee River in the southeastern part of Ontario.

All the roads in Ontario make up the Provincial Highway Network maintained by the Ministry of Transportation (MTO). Peterborough has access to all major highways, including Highway 401 and Highway 407 East.

What Does My Auto Insurance Policy in Peterborough Cover?

Mandatory coverage for insurance in Ontario

This covers legal expenses if you’re sued after an accident. It covers the costs associated with injuries and damage that you caused to others if you’re at-fault in an accident.

This coverage provides funds if someone is injured and in an accident.

This covers all costs if a driver is uninsured or in the event of a hit-and-run.

Covers damage to your vehicle or other property if you’re not at fault in an accident that’s in Ontario.

Optional coverage for insurance in Ontario

This covers damage to your vehicle if you’re involved in an accident with an object, or are at-fault.

Covers damage to your vehicle which happen from incidents other than an accident such as hail, wind, water, theft, or even vandalism.

This coverage gives you one ‘free’ at-fault accident, meaning your rates will not increase on your first accident if you remain with the same company.

If your vehicle is deemed a total loss this coverage will protect you from depreciation. You’ll be entitled to the original price you paid/current sale price of your car. 

This covers the expenses relating to towing your car after an accident.

You can have your car insurance coverage extend to protect you while driving a rental vehicle up to a certain limit.

I would definitely recommend looking here for first-rate customer service! It was my 1st time using an on-line insurance broker, and I would like to thank Warren Drake for making it virtually stress-free! (dare I say enjoyable?) Warren was very professional, courteous, personable & efficient. He made sure, at every juncture, to present me with the options available, ensured that I understood & recommended what he felt was best & why. Stress-free & very good rate! Well done!!

I just started shopping and browsing as I am planning to buy a car in the next few months, and Amy Brown called me to give me all the information I need to make the right decision on what insurance company to choose. She was very professional and very helpful even though she knows I'm buying an insurance in the future as my new car is not ready yet. The rates and coverage she could find me are unbeatable for Toronto Midtown. I highly recommend to anyone looking for an Insurance Broker. Thanks Amy Brown in case you read this message.

I've completed my first year with Duliban Insurance brokers. Signing up for auto insurance I happily saved hundreds of dollars annually for one car. Being a senior with an excellent record Amy Brown made it simple and quick with big savings to begin my new auto policy. I had been with prior insurer for close to 20 years of clean driving. Kudos to Amy and the Duliban Insurance team! Much success!!

What Are Some Fun Activities in Peterborough, Ontario?

There are many things to do and see in Peterborough, from local events to breweries and beyond. These are just some of the things to experience while you are visiting:

The Riverview Park and Zoo is in northern Peterborough, near downtown, and features over 25 animal exhibits. Situated on 55 acres, there are walking trails, picnic areas, a playground, and a splash pad in addition to the animal exhibits. Admission is free, and there is something for everyone to do, so it is definitely worth a visit.

The Trent-Severn Waterway is another spot to visit as it passes through Peterborough. This waterway is 386 kilometers long that connects Lakes Ontario and Huron at Port Severn. This location is unique because it contains the Peterborough Lift Lock, which has been open since 1904 and was once considered the world’s highest hydraulic lift. A boat trip will allow you to witness the process and learn the history of this site. If you happen to visit Peterborough in the winter, be sure to stop by for ice skating, as the portion below the lift lock is frozen and maintained as a rink.

As with most of Ontario, Peterborough is home to many nature trails and parks. Jackson Park is one you do not want to miss. You can kayak on Jackson Creek or go for a hike, bike ride, or run on one of the park’s many trails. Be on the lookout for the Pagoda Bridge, which is a landmark here. As the site of many weddings, it is a great photo op with the family!

Other attractions you will not want to miss in Peterborough include:

  • Canadian Canoe Museum
  • Art Gallery of Peterborough
  • Petroglyphs Provincial Park
  • Publican Craft Brewery
  • Millennium Park
  • Peterborough Skate Park
  • Peterborough Marina

Peterborough Roads and Surrounding Areas

There are many neighborhoods in Peterborough, and all of them are desirable for different reasons. Depending on your needs, you may want to consider one of the following Peterborough neighborhoods:

East City

The East City neighborhood of Peterborough is located close to downtown and within walking distance of Little Lake and many nature trails. Residents say this neighborhood feels like a city within a city and has a close-knit community feel.

East City is also the oldest area of Peterborough, so the homes are older and eclectic. But it is an up-and-coming area and would be great for younger professionals who want to be close to the action of downtown. Some of the major roads you may find yourself on in Peterborough are Maria Street, Burnham Street, Rogers Street, and Ashburnham Drive.

University Heights

The neighborhood of University Heights is located in the north end section of Peterborough and close to Trent University. The homes in this neighborhood are more upscale and better suited for families who would prefer a quiet place to call home.

Despite the proximity to a college, the homes are far enough away not to be disruptive but close enough for convenience. The main roads you may encounter here are Champlain Drive, Champlain Crescent, and University Heights Boulevard.

Kawartha Heights

Located in the West End of Peterborough, Kawartha Heights is a neighborhood for young families. The homes tend to be more affordable here, with easy access to Highway 115, making it a desirable location for commuters. The main roads in this neighborhood are Kawartha Heights Boulevard, Brealey Drive, Ridewood Road, and Cherryhill Road.

If your car is older and you do not have a loan on it, you might consider dropping the collision coverage. Just be aware that you may not have coverage for damage to your car depending on the circumstances of an accident.


Finally, shop around for auto insurance on occasion. Auto insurers are always looking for ways to lower their premiums. You might find that another insurance company offers a better rate than the one you are currently getting.
