Map of Oshawa

Welcome to Oshawa!

Along the shores of Lake Ontario is Oshawa, 62 km northeast of Toronto. This suburb has defined itself as a residential and business community with several attractions. The Canadian Automotive Museum chronicles the nation—s advancements in motorized vehicles, with over 65 on display dating from 1898 to present. Murals painted by Canadian artists brighten up Oshawa's downtown core. Parkwood Estate, the former home of GM founding member Sam McLaughlin, consists of 55 rooms, over 30 of which are open to the public and is a popular wedding and filming location. Aviation enthusiasts will appreciate the annual Aviation Expo, the largest in Canada. Oshawa began as an Aboriginal fur-trading site in the early 18th century. When a permanent community formed, the name Oshawa was chosen, literally translated as "that point at the crossing of the stream where the canoe was exchanged for the trail". This point is still important, as the city—s exceptional harbour facilities continue to contribute to the economy.
