Welcome to Oakville

  • A full-service acute care community hospital
  • Proximity to Lake Ontario and recreational areas
  • Easy access via QEW, 403, 407 and GO Transit
  • Charming shopping districts in the downtown core

This thriving municipality of about 165,000 residents provides all the advantages of a well-serviced urban centre, while also maintaining its small-town ambiance. Along historical downtown streets, Oakville offers a mix of converted 19th century buildings which accommodate over 400 fine shops, services and restaurants.
