Oshawa Moving Companies
Today, with a population of some 146,000, the City of Oshawa is ideally situated
at the eastern gateway of what has become known as the Greater Toronto Area, Canada's
"Engine of Growth". The name Oshawa derives from the Ojibwa term “aazhaway,” meaning
“the crossing place” or “just across.” Oshawa is the dominant economic and educational
centre of the Regional Municipality of Durham, and was ranked as one of the top
40 places to do business in Canada. Oshawa’s economy itself has always been greatly
dominated by the Canadian division of General Motors and the automobile industry
generally, but has also become a viable player in the Sustainable Energy, Information
Technology, and Bioscience/Agriculture industries.
Oshawa was ranked in the top 25 Canadian cities to live in by Money Sense magazine,
and encompasses 2,200 acres of park and conservation lands, including great hiking
trails, biking trails, and the Waterfront Trail along the shores of Lake Ontario.
Oshawa boasts of being a community that offers the best of both worlds: a major
urban centre with small-town friendliness and values. Their carefully planned neighbourhoods,
abundant parklands, and equally abundant cultural and recreational facilities make
it a wonderful place to live and work, especially due to its close proximity to
Toronto (a 30 minute drive). Many commuting to Toronto have moved there for the
comparatively low housing prices and the regular rail service into downtown Toronto
provided by GO Transit and Via Rail. A community committed to recreational and cultural
growth, inhabitants also enjoy a wide array of festivals and live performances that
Oshawa hosts throughout the year.
