Oakville is a town in Halton Region, near Lake Ontario in Southern Ontario, Canada, with a population of just under two hundred thousand people. Located between Toronto and Hamilton, Oakville, Ontario is a family orientated town and is considered to be within the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).
Oakville's first industries included shipbuilding, timber shipment, and wheat farming. Basket-making became
a major industry in the town, and the 'Grand Trunk Railway' was built through it. The town eventually became industrialized with the opening of Cities Service Canada oil refineries and, most importantly, the Canadian headquarters for the 'Ford Motor Company' plant.
In 1962 the town of Oakville merged with its neighbouring
villages (Bronte, Palermo, Sheridan, and the remainder of Trafalgar Township) to become the 'new Town of Oakville.' Oakville is approximately 130 square kilometeres in size with over 2400 acres of park space and only about 30 minutes from Toronto and Hamilton.
