City of Oshawa A family-oriented and affordable suburban haven

The "automotive capital of Canada" is the home of the country's General Motors assembly centre, which is the city of 150,000's (CMA population 356,000) biggest employer. Hence, large sections of the city are decidedly blue-collar and rents are far lower in Oshawa than in other regions of the Greater Toronto Area. In addition to cheaper rents, Oshawa residents have excellent recreational amenities at their doorsteps, including Lakeview Park's sandy beach along Lake Ontario, as well as the McLaughlin Bay Wildlife Reserve. At 60 kilometres east of downtown Toronto, commuting either by car or by public transit is a chore, but the city's employers offer great work opportunities, meaning staying in town is a definite possibility. The south side of town has more apartments and lower-income families and immigrants, while the north's bigger suburban homes and sprawling streets are for those in higher-paying positions.

Who Lives Here

The young and able. Partly because of its blue-collar workforce, the population of Oshawa is pretty young compared to other areas in the GTA. But blue collar doesn't mean low wages here, as many employees of Oshawa's biggest employers win big dollars.

Perfect for…

Families wanting to take advantage of low housing prices and excellent access to public schools and post-secondary education.

Not-so-perfect for…

Lovers of the status-quo, who will feel disrupted by the rapid change happening in Oshawa, and the number of cranes in the skyline. Conservatives may not love the diversity of Oshawa.

Life and Style

There's no better way to spend the summer than taking full advantage of Lakeview Park, which runs along the Lake Ontario shoreline and is fully covered by a sandy beach. Couples and the young families of Oshawa, as well as the city's seniors, spend warm afternoons here in the summer, and in winter, too. Wonderful sports facilities, walking trails, public pools and the wildlife reservations make up some of the other great recreational options in town; Oshawa has, for years, produced the best players and teams in the country for hockey, basketball, lacrosse and rugby. Festivals are present in Oshawa be it spring, summer, winter or fall, the most prolific being Fiesta Week and the Maple Syrup Festival.

Housing Market

Downtown Oshawa has quite a few well-preserved Tudor and Edwardian homes, but in general, the housing types in Oshawa are very mixed. Downtown has also seen a recent influx of new high- and mid-rise condo development. Most of the new developments, though, are concentrated in the north, although the south hasn't been forgotten, attracting renters and buyers with a bit more money who seek homes with yards. Throughout, Oshawa neighbourhoods tend to be low-density, with detached bungalows being the standard for local homes.

Avg. rent by type and size

Bach/studio: $870

Neighbourhood

Sports are a big deal in Oshawa, being home of the Oshawa Generals in the OHL – that's the one that brought up Bobby Orr. Residents of Oshawa dine at some great restaurants, such as Cyrus or Teddy’s Restaurant and Deli, then wash it down with a drink at the city's bars, like Shoeless Joe's or Riley's. People can catch a movie in one of the awesome theatres in town including the Regent Theatre.
