Pedlar People Limited was a sheet metal stamping operation started in 1861 in Oshawa, Ontario by blacksmith Henry Pedlar in the back of his hardware store. The operation was expanded by his son, George H. Pedlar, to become the largest sheet metal factory in the British Empire. The business was in operation until forced into receivership in 1982. Pedlar People, together with several other small manufacturing operations enabled Oshawa to be considered the "Manchester of Canada."
