About the Program

The Advanced Services & Advisory Project (ASAP) is a collaborative community-based project designed to connect organizations and businesses operating within the City and County of Peterborough and First Nations to local professionals for advice, training, and counselling critical to help navigate through the pandemic.

The program is made possible with the support of Community Futures Peterborough, through the Regional Relief and Recovery Fund (RRRF), a project funded by the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontario).
