Canadian Art Flies

Self employment can be challenging, but the Social Services Division in conjunction with the Greater Peterborough Innovation Cluster offer supports for success!

Teresa Mailath, entrepreneur and small business owner of Canadian Art Flies has turned her business dreams into a reality! Canadian Art Flies, a uniquely local business is the result of Teresa's hobby for making fishing fly creations into a successful enterprise where her product is sold globally. She hand ties individual pieces of art as gifts, decorations and even to be given as awards and trophies.

"Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of
himself and his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary
social services. "

Need Food?

You are not alone!

"Over 300,000 people in Ontario have had to rely on local food banks for nutrition. In Peterborough, over 9,000 other people, just like you don't have enough to eat."
