Greater Toronto Area Realtors® Report April Resale Housing Figures
The Toronto Real Estate Board has examined property assessment and land registry data in Ontario and has concluded that foreign buyer ownership, as  well as speculation by foreign and domestic buyers and multiple ownership in the Greater Golden  Horseshoe housing market remains low.


Habitat for Humanity Durham partners with The Region of Durham along with two other charities (Canadian Diabetes Association & Salvation Army) on one Saturday a month for a ReUse Day.  On these days we help divert waste from the landfill by collecting donations for our ReStore.

 We need volunteers to help on these days!  We will be directing donors, sorting material, and loading/unloading product.

 Dates and times are as follows:

 Saturday June 17th
Saturday July 15th
Saturday August 19th
Saturday September 16th
Saturday October 21st

 ReUse Days take place at Durham Region Waste Management Centre at 4600 Gerrard Rd., Whitby. We ask our volunteers to be on site at 8:30am for set up.  Collection ends at 1:00pm.

If you are able to help please either sign up on our Events Calendar or contact Lisa at

O shawa, ON Dr. Colin Carrie, Member of Parliament for Oshawa, launched his Canada 150 Medal program earlier today.
     “For the first time in our history, the Government of Canada has chosen not to have a national medal program to celebrate such a monumental anniversary. I believe that our sesquicentennial is an important milestone worthy of recognition. As part of the celebrations for Canada`s 150th birthday, I want to recognize the individuals in our community that have made Oshawa and Canada such a wonderful place to live.”
     Oshawa’s Canada 150 Medal program is open to all residents of the Oshawa riding and is designed to recognize individuals who have contributed significantly to the development of our community and our country.  Nominees will be selected from the following categories: Community Builders, Service Clubs, Good Neighbours, Arts, Culture & Heritage and Other. The recipients will be presented with their medals befitting their service to our community later in 2017.
     “The tenants of volunteerism and civic pride have deep roots in our community and across our great nation. The contributions of faith communities, service clubs and countless volunteers have played an important role in our history. There is no better way to celebrate this important year than by recognizing the outstanding contributions of the people who have made Oshawa great.”
     The application form can be downloaded from our website, , or picked up at the constituency office, 57 Simcoe St. S, and can be returned either electronically or in paper format. Each application requires a minimum of two letters of reference for the nominee and a sponsor. Submissions will be accepted until 5 PM local time on Friday June 2nd, 2017.

Business Of The Month  
Justice Burgers

Justice Burgers wants to make sure you eat! 

Officially opened for business in September 2016, this small local eatery has been dishing out to paying customers and non-paying customers alike to ensure no one goes hungry.

A wall in the restaurant covered with coupons means anyone can walk in and get a burger if they’re hungry. Patrons can purchase a $5 coupon to add to the wall and ‘pay it forward’, anyone is welcome to take a coupon for a free burger no questions asked.

Featured on Global News, Rogers TV and in the Toronto Star, Justice Burgers is a little taste of Oshawa generosity in the downtown core.

This past winter they donated money to buy supplies for a small outdoor skating rink in Brick-by-Brick park as well as donating food to St. Vincent’s Kitchen along with their Giveback Wall initiative.

Congratulations to Justice Burgers for being named Business of the Month for May 2017!
