We Accept the Kawartha Loon

what is kawartha loon

If you love Peterborough you'll want to know what the Kawartha Loon is and how to use it! To promote local wealth-building efforts of our community, local farming and trading of services, Transition Town Peterborough (TTP) created the Kawartha Loon Exchange and the Kawartha Loon in 2013 to keep money right here in our neighbourhood.

Where to get Kawartha Loons Banner

Transition Town Peterborough (TTP) is a grassroots, volunteer, non-profit organization focused on reducing fossil fuel dependency while increasing local resilience and security of food, water, energy, culture and wellness. Using the sound foundations of our local Peterborough Credit Union as its sole banking agent, TTP can issue Kawartha Loons (KL) on a 10% discount compared to the Canadian Dollar i.e $20 can get you $18 Kawartha Loons. Using your 18 KL, you can purchase goods or services worth 20 Canadian Dollars.

By using the local Peterborough currency you can pay for local goods and services at our local businesses and help do your part to create more local wealth and more local jobs. Even a shift to local Peterborough spending can create a measurable impact in local businesses and reduce our reliance on non-local goods, including out-of-province foods and oil. Access to public and private funding is also improved for our region and keeping wealth in a community is one of the key foundations for creating a community you can rely on and grow together.
