The Slovenian Society
Oshawa Ontario

After the second World War a group of Slovenians found employment at the General Motors plant in Oshawa, Ontario. There were few organized activities for the immigrants until the Oshawa Slovenian Society was established in February, 1972. The club now owns land east of Oshawa, which is used for picnics and other outings and where the members hope to build a hall in the near future. Two annual social functions are held a New Year's Eve party and a Mardi Gras celebration in February. The society has also operated a Saturday school. There are approximately 125 members at the present time.
