Nestled on the shores of Lake Ontario, the Town of Oakville was founded in 1827 by William Chisholm, a ship builder, timber merchant and politician. From its earnest beginnings, Oakville still offers the ambience of a small town with the amenities of a modern city. Downtown Oakville and Bronte Village offer a unique blend of over 400 diverse shops, eateries, and personal and business services right at your fingertips.

If recreation is what you're seeking, Oakville has two natural harbours, over 140 kilometers of hiking and biking trails, a provincial park for camping and day use , as well as 8 golf courses including Glen Abbey Golf Course.

The Oakville community is a proud supporter of the arts, which can be seen when visiting the many art galleries, the Oakville Museum, or by taking in a show at the Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts. After a long day, relax at one of Oakville's 8 beautiful hotels, which offer all the modern amenities, for the corporate and leisure traveler.
