Oshawa, Ontario, or “The Shwa” as many locals call it is a city of polar opposites. The Southside is the old Oshawa. It originated in the early 1800’s and is full of rich history. The Northside is where Ontario Tech University and many new developments are being created.
The automotive industry is what put the city on the map though. Oshawa is home to the headquarters of General Motors Canada, employing up to 23,000 individuals at its peak. Oshawa also attracts a number of film and tv producers, most notably: X-Men, Chicago, and Hannibal. On top of all that, It’s the home of hockey legends and proteges including Bobby Orr, Eric Lindros, and John Tavares.
