Lindsay is a community of over 20,000 people west of Peterborough and is the main source of business and commerce in that area. There are a number of historical sites that surround the Lindsay area. It is also well known for its golf courses and country club estates. For those that are looking to raise a family in a town that is rich with culture and heritage and having that often-sought-after country/small town feel with the convenience of a large city nearby often recommend moving to Lindsay.

There are at least 11 elementary schools, 3 high schools and 1 college (Fleming College) within the town’s limits, and with the help of Lindsay transit residents have access to not just the Lindsay community, but will also have access to the surrounding areas to connect with other public transit. Lindsay also has a special partnership with their sister city, Nayoro Japan, that provides a cultural exchange for two local students to visit Japan for free through the Olde Gaol Museum every two years.
