May Speaker Series – From Ship to Shore, The Story of Oshawa’s Harbour

For centuries, the waterways of Lake Scugog, Oshawa Creek, and Lake Ontario provided Indigenous peoples and settlers with a natural navigation system and became the backdrop for the commercial, agricultural, and residential development that would later become the City of Oshawa.  

Oshawa’s waterfront has many stories to tell, from hunting and fishing, ship building, trade, railways, steamboats, pleasure crafts, and ocean-going vessels.  The waterfront and specifically the Oshawa Harbour have played an important role in the settling of our area and continues that function as a vital element of the City’s growth and economic development today. 

Join our curator, Melissa Cole, as she shares the stories from our June 2022 exhibition, From Ship to Shore: Exploring Oshawa’s Relationship with Lake Ontario

The Speaker Series is taking place on Tuesday, May 17 at 7pm, hosted on Zoom. The event is free to attend, but donations are kindly accepted (suggested $5/person).
