Fifty years ago, a handful of Greek families that settled in the Durham Region had a vision. That vision was to preserve their Hellenic heritage in their newly adopted country . . . Canada. These families were the founders of the Greek Community as we know it today. Much fundraising has taken place with the dreams of one day building a community centre that would be a meeting place for Greeks within the Oshawa area and district. The aim is to unify Greeks both young and old. That dream is finally within reach of becoming a reality. The Community owns a 14 acre parcel on Stevenson Road North and an active committee is tirelessly on a mission to bring that vision to fruition.
The Greek Community of Oshawa is a non-profit organization without share capital. The Community is a registered Charity under the Income Tax Act of Canada.
We have been involved in fund raising ventures for the community at large for organizations such as Lakeridge Health Hospital, Denise House, Durham College Scholarships and many more.
