Nestled on the shores of Lake Ontario, Toronto to one side and Hamilton to the other, the beautiful Town of Oakville is known for its picturesque harbours, vibrant shopping districts, active arts community and some of the best dining options in the Greater Toronto Area.
This thriving municipality 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.
Oakville was founded in 1837 by Colonel William Chisholm, who purchased the land at the mouths of the 16 Mile and Bronte Creeks from the Mississauga people and left development of the lands to his son, Robert Kerr Chisholm, and brother-in-law, Thomas Merrick. Blessed by two natural harbours and shores dense with trees, shipbuilding and timber became important early industries.
People who live here are proud of the quality of life this great community has to offer. In a recent survey of residents, 86 per cent said Oakville is a better place to live than anywhere else in the GTA. Ideally located in a beautiful natural setting, Oakville offers first-rate facilities and amenities. The outstanding range of lifestyle choices will continue to make this growing community one in which residents and businesses feel a sense of pride and connection.
