District 36 serves the City of Peterborough and the surrounding rural areas of Peterborough County. We have approximately 1250 members.

District 36 is an active group and the executive strives to provide events and information to meet the needs and interests of all our members with a focus on healthy, active living, social and mental health.

Making connections between young people and our members is a district focus. One example are the ten High School Merit awards given out annually at secondary school commencements.

District 36 provides a variety of ongoing activities both monthly and annually.

Community Grants are another way by which District 36 supports our local community. Any local organization that helps seniors in our community have the opportunity to apply for a grant of up to $4000. District 36 has had several groups successfully receive these grants. Hospice Norwood and Activity Haven Senior Centre Peterborough were the 2 most recent recipients and each received $4000.
