Oakville ranked # 7 in MoneySense’s Canada’s Best Places to Live 2014:

"Oakville has long been known for its great weather and high incomes. But there's more to this lakefront community than just mild temperatures and pristine lawns. Oakville also boasts low crime rates, robust population growth and a strong arts and culture scene."

This thriving municipality of over 196,000 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.

A 30-minute drive from downtown Toronto, and an hour’s drive from the U.S. border, Oakville is a great destination for visitors.

Residents and visitors enjoy theatre, dance, music and comedy performances at the Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts. They can visit the Oakville Museum at Erchless Estate, located in the home of the Chisolms, Oakville’s founding family. Other points of interest include galleries, historical societies and local architecture, especially in heritage neighbourhoods. Oakville is also home to the state-of-the-art Sixteen Mile Sports Complex and the new Queen Elizabeth Park Community and Cultural Centre.

Among the many special attractions and activities for the whole family, Oakville’s annual RibFest and Jazz Festival draw crowds from around the GTA. The community also provides plenty of recreational opportunities. Golfers can play at one of Oakville's many golf courses, including PGA-recognized Glen Abbey Golf Course, which has hosted the Canadian Open for many years.

Enjoy the acres of park space, many with groomed hiking trails, or join a recreation centre which provides programs for all ages. For boaters, Oakville features two picturesque harbours with docks and slips for sail and powerboats.

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.
