Downtown Oshawa’s heart comes from its history, industrial and cultural background and has a city feel. Surrounded by historic buildings, parks, museums and galleries it has lots of opportunities for new businesses to share their own style. Oshawa has become a destination for shoppers to wander the variety of retail stores and food places, but it does not have everything it needs to support the local residents. It has a large student population with three educational institutes within its border, as well as a number of live entertainment venues and its own OHL Hockey team! The local population loves to support small businesses, diversity and authenticity.

The My Main Street Business Accelerator Program aims to revitalize the downtown area by supporting new and existing brick-and-mortar independent businesses. Business owners are encouraged to reach out to their community's Ambassador for more information.
