About Oakville

 WELCOME TO OAKVILLE


A vibrant and impressive community within the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), the Town of Oakville is a beautiful lakeside town with a strong heritage, revered and celebrated by residents and visitors alike. Founded in 1857, this striking town has become one of the most coveted residential and business centres in Ontario, and for good reason:

This thriving municipality of about 187,300 residents provides all the advantages of a well-serviced urban centre, while maintaining its small-town ambiance.

Along historical downtown streets, Oakville offers a mix of converted 19th century buildings which accommodate over 400 fine shops, restaurants and professional services.
