Oshawa history


Oshawa was mainly a farming community until its landscape was transformed by the automotive industry throughout the 20th century. In 1907, the McLaughlin Motor Car Company began to make Buick cars in Oshawa and later, the Chevrolet brand. In 1918, the McLaughlin Motor Car Company merged with the Chevrolet Motor Car Company of Canada and formed General Motors of Canada. Today, General Motors of Canada is still the largest employer in Oshawa. Fueled by its early booming automotive industry, Oshawa experience much urbanization throughout the later half of the 20th century and it is now a lovely bustling city along the shores of Lake Ontario.
