Oakville is one of the best places in Ontario to raise a family. Nestled against Lake Ontario, equidistance between Toronto and Hamilton, Oakville blends historic homes with modern customs builds.

The town of Oakville can be divided into four main quadrants: South East, South West, North East and North West. Each quadrant can be divided further into neighbourhoods which have their own distinct character. You can read about the different neighbourhoods in our Neighbourhood Guide.
