Nestled on the shores of Lake Ontario, in between Toronto and Niagara, 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.
Oakville is located on the Treaty Lands and Territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit.
The Town of Oakville was founded in 1857 by Colonel William Chilsolm, who purchased the land at the mouths of the 16 Mile and 12 Mile (now known as Bronte) Creeks.
