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, preserved 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:
Great places to do business
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.
