Oakville's future as Canada's most livable town is bright.
Council is moving forward on our path to a more livable and sustainable future. The civic engagement we need for Oakville to make more progress on the path we set out on seven years ago is strong and growing. We on Council may lead, but we work through others.
We’re controlling growth, saving green space, and keeping up with the town’s needs. We're keeping increases to taxes and public debt lower than before even though we are catching up on so much that had been neglected, with modern corporate fiscal management tools. We have a vision out to 2057 that creates, preserves and affords the livability that Oakville is known for.
We all care about the town we live in. We volunteer and give our time and effort to make Oakville a better place for all. This spirit is the backbone, the muscle and the heart of what makes Oakville, Oakville. And this spirit, with our ability to work together effectively, is what drives us forward toward our goal of being the most livable town in Canada.
