Oakville named Best Place to Live in Canada!
In a ranking of 415 cities, towns and villages, MoneySense Magazine has named the Town of Oakville as the best place to live in Canada! 

The online magazine's rankings are based on the economy, affordability, safety and culture of each municipality, as well as access to health care services, transit and schools.
"Council is extremely proud our town is being recognized on the national stage," said Mayor Rob Burton. "Being named the No. 1 Best Place to Live in Canada is an honour we - residents, town staff and Council - have truly earned together as a community."

Not only was Oakville named Canada's best place to live, we were named the best city for new Canadians, the third best city for retirees and the fifth best to raise a family!
