Allied Van Lines: The Best of Oshawa Moving Companies

Oshawa, situated on Lake Ontario’s shoreline in southern Ontario, is dubbed the “Automotive Capital of Canada,” thanks to the Canadian division of General Motors Company, known as General Motors Canada, which has long acted as the backbone of Oshawa’s economy. The city is considered the eastern anchor of the Greater Toronto Area and of the Golden Horseshoe. Its name devises from the Ojibwa term “aazhawa,” which means “the crossing place.”

As of the 2011 Census, there were about 149,000 people living in Oshawa, representing nearly an 8 percent growth since 2006. The population density is about 394 people per square kilometre.

Residents welcome a fairly chilly climate with temperatures reaching negative 5 degrees Celsius in the winter and 23 degrees in the summertime.
