Our Engagement

Supporting Our Community 

Oshawa Centre is a proud, long-standing community supporter of non-profit organizations and engagement programs. 

PARTNERSHIP WITH UNITED WAY

United Way is a dynamic community agency that can provide up-to-date information on government, social services and cultural activities in Oshawa and the surrounding area. Their information database reflects community needs, interests and priorities. Their mission is to provide a vital link between people and their needs.
In addition to providing information about the community, United Way agents act as OC ambassadors providing a range of customer services to our guests. 
With this unique partnership OC is able to offer the purchase of city garbage bag tags, Durham Regional Transit passes and Presto cards, as well as, local theatre tickets and tickets to events at the General Motors Centre.
