Our Vision: Living well at 55+! Our Mission Statement: The Oshawa Senior Citizens Centres and their community operations are non-profit, multi-purpose community facilities for adults aged 55 and over. The Corporation of the Oshawa Senior Citizens Centre promotes the health, welfare and happiness of seniors by providing programs and services to foster senior empowerment, social interaction, public education and advocacy. Our Values: Committed to values of health, personal growth, happiness and community. Our History: The Oshawa Senior Citizens Centres has a rich history in the City of Oshawa that began when the cornerstone was laid for the original Branch, 43 John Street in 1968. Leaders in the community thought that a drop-in destination would be good for the City. The community welcomed the social and activity opportunities when the Branch opened in 1969 and it quickly flourished as a hot spot for older adults to enjoy dances, bingo, birthday and anniversary celebrations; in the first year, 1,000 people became members. In 1973, the OSCC began offering affordable full meal services and by 1975 the building underwent a 13,000 square foot expansion to accommodate the growing participation levels. The OSCC began to recognize the need for additional out reach services. So, in 1977 Shut-In Senior Program Services, Day Programs and Consumer Conferences began. The City of Oshawa was growing and so was the OSCC opening their second Branch located within the Northview Community Centre in 1989. The demand for additional opportunities in programs, activities, education and art led to the OSCC further expanding, opening Legends Branch within the Legends Complex in 2006. The fourth Conant Branch of the OSCC opened their doors in October 2008 rounding out the placement of the OSCC in all four quadarants of the City. Today the Oshawa Senior Citizens Centres serves approximately 6,000 older adults and continues to be a cornerstone of the Oshawa community.
