Review our draft Economic Development Strategy and tell us what you think
Join us at our open house
Thursday, May 16, 5-7 p.m. at Town Hall
We're excited to share with you a draft of the town's new Economic Development Strategy (2019-2024). Our goal is to develop a strategy that truly reflects the needs and opportunities facing the Oakville business community.
The new strategy's vision, to be the best place to work in Canada, is an aspiration for economic growth in support of new company investment, existing company growth, and employment opportunities for Oakville residents. The vision builds on the Town of Oakville's vision to be the most livable town in Canada.
We encourage you to get involved. Review the draft strategy online and drop by our open house on May 16 to learn more and share your thoughts with staff.
