Oakville is a suburban town in Southern Ontario, Canada. Located in Halton Region, on Lake Ontario, it is part of the Greater Toronto Area. In 1793, Dundas Street was surveyed for a military road. In 1805, the Legislative Assembly of Upper Canada bought the lands between Etobicoke and Hamilton from the Mississaugas aboriginal people, except for the land at the mouths of Twelve Mile Creek (Bronte Creek), Sixteen Mile Creek, and along the Credit River. In 1807, British immigrants settled the area surrounding Dundas Street as well as on the shore of Lake Ontario.  Oakville’s first industries included shipbuilding, timber shipment, and wheat farming.

The town eventually became industrialized with the opening of Cities Service Canada (later BP Canada, and now Petro Canada) and Shell Canada oil refineries (both now closed), the Procor factory (no longer manufacturing), and, most importantly, the Ford Motor Company’s Canadian headquarters and plant.

Oakville has a long history of sporting. The Oakville Blue Devils of Canadian Soccer League is a recognized professional soccer team.  Oakville is home to the headquarters and practice facilities of the Toronto Rock professional box lacrosse team competing in the National Lacrosse League. Oakville is also home to the 3rd largest minor lacrosse association in Ontario.  Oakville is home to the Oakville Crusaders Rugby club.

It holds a variety of events such as: Dountown Oakville Jazz Festival; Waterfront Festival; For the Love of the Arts Festival, Midnight Madness and Oakville Family Ribfest. The Town of Oakville boasts many not-for-profit artistic, musical and cultural groups such as The Oakville Arts Council; Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts; CommUnity Arts Space; Oakville Galleries and the Oakville Children’s Choir.
