Oakville is a suburban city in southern Ontario. Year after year this mid-size city rises to the top as one of the best places to live in Canada. It’s no surprise. Oakville offers excellent employment opportunities in high paying professions, along with a community that boasts low crime rates and a strong arts culture and sports community.

This southern Ontario city is actually made up of 13 communities. The boundaries of these neighbourhoods are broadly based on the traditional towns and hamlets that now make up the city. Old Oakville, situated on the shores of Lake Ontario, is the city’s downtown, while northern Oakville is considered the Uptown Core. Despite the high household incomes, the city’s population skews on the younger side. Almost 30% of the city’s residents are youth aged 19 years and younger; pensioners make up just under 12% of the population. Compare this with Canada’s population where 24.4% are under age 19  and almost 14% are pensioners.

The heritage of the city’s residents is predominantly English, Scottish and Irish although Italians, Germans, French and Polish also settled in this area. This strong European influence may be a reason why the city is a bit of a soccer hot-spot. There are more than 60 soccer fields in Oakville, as well as a Soccer Club Facility with a full-size FIFA Certified indoor pitch. You could say, Oakville is mad for soccer. But it’s not the only sport enjoyed by the city’s residents. Hockey is a big past time here with a variety of National League Hockey players getting their start in the Oakville junior leagues. Even Ron MacLean, the iconic Hockey Night in Canada host, grew up on these shores.

While the city does focus on winter sports the winters are actually quite mild for a southern Ontario town. This is due, in part, because the city is right on the lake. This makes winters less extreme and summer’s not as humid.

The top employers are the Catholic school board, Ford Motor Company, the public school board and Halton Healthcare.

Neighbourhoods

The average price of a home in one of Oakville’s 13 communities is over $1 million, but if you want a detached home, be prepared to spend at least $200,000 more. To find the neighbourhood that best suits your need, consider what’s important to you and your lifestyle.

If being close to the harbour and downtown in important, check out property in Old Oakville, where you’ll find a number of newer condos and townhomes. For families that want quick, easy access to shopping, transit and commuter-friendly highways look in the College Park community. Most homes here are built as two-storey family homes with two-car garages on larger lots.

If you’d prefer a new-build home consider the Iroquois Ridge in south Oakville. Many homes were built in the 1990s or later. This means homes are big—think 2,500-square-feet—but the area has had time to mature.

For large homes that are more out-dated consider the Glen Abbey area. Homes in this community were built in the 1970s when big was beautiful. This may mean some remodelling is necessary, but for a community with great schools and easy access to community centres and shopping, it’s worth it.

If you’re in the market for a luxury home, consider the communities of South East, Morrison and East Lake. Homes for sale here can climb up to the $15 million range but also come with sizeable lots, large multi-bedroom homes, most with their own suites, as well as various extras.

Nearby Cities

Many buyers opt to purchase in a nearby city and commute to work. These buyers want larger homes and lots but with good commuter access to Oakville’s downtown core. Good options include Burlington, Port Credit and Milton. Look for neighbourhoods that are closer to the highway or commuter train stations, such as Appleby or Willmott. Even cities that require a bit longer of a commute, such as Hamilton, Ancaster and Guelph are good options as they offer more affordable detached homes.

Commuters

For getting around you can either rely on a bike, public transit or your car. The city’s transit is an excellent option for many commuters with a light rail GO Passenger Train, along with a number of bus routes. If you’d rather bike, check out neighbourhoods close to the shores of Lake Ontario, where there is easy access to bike trails. Those relying on a car need not worry. Oakville southern neighbourhoods have easy access to the Highway 403 or Lakeshore Road.

There are hands-on building activities, art tables, dance and music lessons as well as interactive shows, also a skateboard ramp, face painting and a scavenger hunt. Later in the summer, the same park hosts the Oakville Waterfront Festival. The event includes free concerts by major Canadian bands as well a fireworks display.

On the first Saturday in March the Bronte Provincial Park hosts the Maple Syrup Festival. Families can enjoy guided tours, talk to people dressed in 1890’s attire and examine the various methods of maple syrup collection.

Later in the spring, the city puts on the For the Love of Arts Festival, a multi-disciplinary arts show with dance, literary art, theatre and local talent.

Another popular annual event in Oakville is Midnight Madness. Held in the month of July, local artists take to the streets, while local stores and vendors showcase new products and sales.

For those interested in sports, Oakville is home to the Canadian Soccer League team the Blue Devils. The Devils are affiliated with the Oakville Soccer Club, the largest soccer club in Canada. However, lacrosse fans know the city because this is where the Toronto Rock, a professional box lacrosse team that competes in the National Lacrosse League, practices. The city is also home to the third largest minor lacrosse association in Ontario.

Those passionate about golf will recognize the Glen Abbey Golf Course as it’s one of several Canadian Open professional golf championships courses, and it’s located in Oakville.
