Oakville is a town full of flavours and experiences. Since it was established in 1857 by Colonel William Chisholm , Oakville has been an industrious and growing town, becoming one of the most desirable places to live in the GTA. Both residents and visitors enjoy all that Oakville has to offer, especially its ideal location, right along the picturesque shores of Lake Ontario. It is also just around the lake from the magnificent Niagara Falls and near one of Canada’s largest metropolises. The town is close enough that one can have a busy and exciting day trip in Toronto, yet still come back at the end of the day for a quiet and relaxing night in Oakville. The town has a perfect mix of quaint, serene places and bustling activities, with its many annual events and festivals. In 2012, Toronto Life Magazine ranked Oakville as one of five must visit- destinations in the Greater Toronto Area. Come experience for yourself!
