Worked at Darlington for 6 months in 2000, Pickering for 23 months 2001 - 2003.  Stayed in Oshawa both times by renting an apartment vs a hotel.  Don't recall the name of the rental company, however I paid 600 & 800 Canadian for the apartments.   

The Thirsty Monk is a quaint place to go where everyone knows each other.  Two brothers own it and their father owns the adjoining restuarant.  First time I walked in there was a group of 6 from a 13 yr old upto a 70 something grandmother, all sitting around drinking coffee, soda and beer and playing dominoes.  In 2002 they opened another one in Ajax that is a hot bed for the 20 something crowds.  Enjoy your time there, their government may be pretty scoialist but the people are nice.  Oh, and if you are their for over 6 months you have to pay their taxes (I had a tax equalization clause with my company) and you qualify for their free health care, you just have to apply for it.

Hopes this helps
