Oshawa is a city in Ontario, Canada, on the Lake Ontario shoreline. It lies in Southern Ontario, approximately 60 kilometres east of Downtown Toronto. It is commonly viewed as the eastern anchor of the Greater Toronto Area and of the Golden Horseshoe. It is the largest municipality in the Regional Municipality of Durham. The name Oshawa originates from the Ojibwa term aaz haway, meaning "the crossing place" or just "a cross".
General Motors Co said on Wednesday it plans to temporarily lay off about 1,200 workers at its Oshawa assembly plant in Canada, which makes the Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra pickup trucks. Reuters - Published
