What do Oakville residents think of living in this Town?

Most of us who live here agree that it’s a terrific place to live and raise a family.  If you go around town and chat with locals you are likely to come to that conclusion.

Need some more hard facts?

Pollara Strategic Insights conducted a telephone survey on behalf of the Town of Oakville.

A random sample of 800 residents were asked about their views on living in Oakville.
