Oakville is right on the lake, and on the treaty lands and territory of the Mississauga’s of the Credit First Nation. It’s between Toronto and Niagara, so it’s perfect for people who want access to larger cities with a small-town feel. Most neighbourhoods have easy highway access to get to Toronto in less than an hour. All of Oakville has a robust arts and culture scene, as well as outdoor recreation spots. Each one of the neighbourhoods has at least a few parks and luscious greenery as a backdrop. Shopping and dining centers are also located in each of the neighbourhoods, so no matter what you choose you won’t be going far for groceries or a cup of coffee.

You want to be close to the Lakeshore Village boutique shopping as well as have easy access to Toronto. With excellent parks, schools and amenities, bring your chequebook and get ready to fall in love.
