Live here. Work here. Be awesome.

One region. Countless ways to kick it. Peterborough is a place with soul, surrounded by lakes and nature where the people are genuine. Our creative economy is driven by talented people who enjoy the local landscape, galleries, microbreweries, restaurants, nightlife and an enviable music scene. It’s amazing entertainment without the price tag. Where else can you make your home on a lake and have a 15 min commute to a great job you love? First rate schools and a top notch regional health centre are icing on the cake. No wonder we’re one of Canada’s Most Secretly Awesome Cities (MSN Canada) and just a good place to live and work.

OUTDOORsmart! facts.

We’re outdoor enthusiasts too. So we get it.

Our brand is rooted in a belief that spending time in the outdoors lifts the human spirit. We’re better when we can truly connect with our natural environment. We live and breath each of our sports. In fact, your first day at work, won’t be “work”.

Our vision.

We believe its important to focus on our vision every single day. And here’s what we’re going to achieve:

  • To be an enduring company that truly connects with people

  • To be the undisputed leader in outdoor empowerment

  • To do good, and make a profit

    Success is earned, never given.

    We’ve achieved tremendous success, and since 2011 we’ve been recognized as one of Canada’s Top 500 Fastest Growing Companies (PROFIT Magazine). It’s an awesome testament to the hard work of our team and the fact that we never settle for anything less than best-in-class.

    Team fit.

    Even if you’re an awesome skill-set fit, you may not be selected for a role at OUTDOORsmart!. We’ve committed ourselves to Team Fit. That means your final interview won’t focus on skills or experience – it will focus on how you’ll connect with and enhance our culture.
