Oakville has been named the best place to live in Canada in 2018 according to Money Sense magazine. The magazine looked at wealth and economy, affordability, population growth, taxes, commute, crime, weather, access to health care, amenities and culture.

Mayor Rob Burton says the key to Oakville’s success is maintaining a small-town sense of community, even as the city’s population breaks 200,000. In fact, the municipality’s official name stubbornly remains “the Town of Oakville,” something Burton doesn’t see any reason to change.

“Oakville is a city that calls itself a town and acts like a village,” he says. “Oakville as a community is determined to maintain that town vibe.”

Here’s Why Moneysense Says Oakville Takes The Top Spot

  • Oakville residents enjoy access to Toronto’s strong job market while maintaining the benefits of a smaller town feel
  • It is prosperous, but affordable
  • It is safe, yet easy to get around
  • It has the type of weather that draws you outdoors to its numerous parks, trails and bike paths

In addition to placing first overall, Oakville scored high in a number of other categories including best city for new Canadians (first place), best city to retire (third place) and best city to raise a family (fifth place).

Oakville offers a wide range of housing options; from lakefront estate properties to more affordable townhomes.
