Oshawa Remembers Project: Background

Welcome to Oshawa Remembers

A project of the Foundation for Building Sustainable Communities (FBSC)  sponsored by Veteran Affairs  Community Engagement Initiatives

The purpose of the project is to first and foremost work in accordance to the objectives of the Canada Remembers Partnership program which aims to share mutual commemorative goals.

The project is made possible through the direct and generous support of Veteran Affairs to help educate the Canadian public of the Canadian identity  and shared  history.

The Oshawa Remembers focuses on the contribution of Oshawa citizens to the war effort through direct enlistment or through indirect efforts keeping the homefires burning through civic engagment and wartime employment.
