Welcome to Living in Durham!

Shops along Port Perry's main streetWhether you already call Durham home or you are considering moving here - welcome!

We hope you will find information and links to assist you as you adjust to your new home or imagine what life in Durham might be like. We also hope you will take some time to get to know all about us - our similarities, our differences, what we do for fun.

You will find information all about life in the area. Learn about the Region of Durham, its history and what makes it great. You will find things to do in the area and learn about Durham's natural resources. Recreation, healthcare, local arts and culture, public transportation, and resources and supports for seniors and the LGBTQ community may also be found. Here too is where you can find out about the weather and how to enjoy all four seasons (even the cold one!), as well as how to bank and manage money. You will also find a great list of resources and information on raising children of all ages.
