Oshawa Canada Restaurants
Today, it's all about Oshawa food, and as part of a continuing series that illuminates the suburban bites of the stars, here's a look at Canada's former Motor City. Photos are from scenes I saw in the area on two days, as well as some photos from the local food scene.
More than 5,000 people work in the city centre, more than 2,400 students study there, and the UOIT has ten buildings. Similar to southern Ontario, Oshawa has a growing number of "Places of Interest," or "Places to Grow." The older southern neighborhoods tend to be more diverse than the northern suburbs, which are expanding rapidly as commuters from Toronto move in. Downtown Oshaw has been identified as one of Canada's ten most livable cities with a median household income of $60,500 per year.
Oshawa has also done well in terms of crime: at 1.2 crimes per 100,000 people, the crime rate is the lowest in Canada.
There will be four new stations and police will increase their police presence in the city centre with a new police station on the corner of Dundas Street and Queen Street.
Oshawa has a sister station in Peterborough, CHEX - DT, which is part of the city's public radio network, Ontario Public Radio. While all three stations operate from the same studio at Oshawa Airport, the stations are owned by Durham Radio, which also owns CJKX, which is licensed in the nearby community of Ajax.
Lakeridge Health Oshawa is also home to the University of Ontario Health Sciences Centre (UOHSC), the university's medical school, which opened in 2013. The university also opened a booth in 2011 - the campus in the east end of the city alone with a total area of 12,000 square meters.
In the 1890s, the carmakers moved their address to Simcoe Street, but the building remained a carriage building site until it burned down in 1899. After GM moved its main plant south to Oshawa in 1951, freight traffic collapsed and most tracks were removed, although some remaining plants remained until 2000.
The Orono restaurant had to close, and when the lease on the Oshawa location expired in 1991, Chow decided it was time to either close the restaurant or move on to other things. George came to Canada and worked in restaurants in Alberta before travelling east to open a restaurant with a partner in Napanee. After lean years in 1926, George decided to move to Oshawawa and take over the management of the Central Cafe on King Street.
Asa Danforth built his York-Kingston road, which ran through what would later become Oshawa, and he took the name "Oshawa." It had no other meaning than where he had to go and on foot, so the post office was named accordingly. The name osha was adopted by George and his family and many other residents of the area and had a meaning of "where I got to" or "where I went." In 1884, in response to the founding of Whitby Township by the Ontario provincial government in 1885, OshAWA merged with the remaining part of East Whit by Township and took over its present-day borders, which included the remote villages of Columbus, Raglan and Kedron.
Oshawa Station is owned by the national railway company Via Rail, which operates the service on the Quebec City - Windsor corridor. GO Transit buses run between Toronto and York Region and run to Clarington. Electric lines provide tram and freight transportation and connect downtown Oshawa with the Canadian north, which runs to the far north of Oshawa and was built in 1912-13.
In the spring of 2013, Power announced the construction of a television station in Oshawa, the first in the province's history. It was granted to television stations because it was geographically too close to Toronto, with the original distance being 145 km.
GO Transit and Via Rail, which run regular trains into downtown Toronto, attract many commuters to Oshawa. The nearest scheduled international airport is Toronto's Pearson International Airport, located 75 kilometers west of the Mississauga Road.
According to the 2006 census, the Oshawa Census Metropolitan Area, which includes the neighboring cities of Whitby and Clarington, has a population of 330,594. Although the statement often refers to the proximity of Toronto, the city has become one of Canada's fastest growing cities in recent years.
Oshawa is home to more than 22,000 full-time students studying at the University of Oshawa, Ontario's largest public university and the second largest in Canada. The city is home to the Ontario Institute of Technology (OIT), one of Canada's largest universities.
Oshawa is home to Regional Innovation Center 16 and provides start-up facilities for entrepreneurs and small businesses. Oshawa was the inspiration for his previous motto, which was invoked by the automotive industry. It is home to the non-profit magazine Art and Ideas, which was launched in the fall of 2000 by John Arkelian, editor and editor-in-chief.
