Oakville is a picturesque town with architectural and cultural heritage that comes alive in the 19th century buildings of its downtown core, and in the streets of its diverse neighbourhoods. Oakville’s lifestyle, however, is thoroughly modern. As a part of the Greater Toronto Area, Oakville is home to 300 national and international corporate head offices. The region’s high quality of life is one of the reasons its population grew by over 10% between 2006 and 2011.

Oakville’s heart is its downtown area, which has a blend of historic and modern architecture, plenty of boutiques and bistros, and lively festivals year-round. A town that easily complements a balanced lifestyle, Oakville also boasts an abundance of parklands, trails, golf courses and colourful public gardens.
