In 2018, MoneySense named Oakville the best place to live in Canada - and the nearly 223,063 (2021) residents of this southern Ontario town would have to agree. Where is Oakville? The town is on Lake Ontario between Hamilton and the City of Toronto. Oakville is an attractive option in the GTA, it is about 30 minutes away from Toronto, is included on all major public transit routes, and is a stunning community in its own right. For those who need to be close to Toronto, but aren’t interested in big-city living, Oakville is certainly worth considering.
Oakville Real Estate
Oakville is popular, there is no doubt about it. As the GTA has expanded outward - especially if you count the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area - communities as close to Toronto as Oakville are incredibly desirable. There’s more to the popularity than convenience, though; Oakville sports a scenic waterfront, historic downtown, plenty of green spaces, and an active community, making it especially popular amongst families.
Just as its population has been rapidly rising, so has Oakville’s Real estate numbers. On paper, Oakville is considered an expensive place to live, with an average property price of $1,477,800 in November 2021 (stats are from the Oakville-Milton and District Real Estate Board). This number is driven up by the extremely high prices of detached homes in Oakville, most of which are in the millions. Condos and townhomes (townhouse/row units was $794,600 - apartment price was $721,200, Nov 2021) are actually a lot more affordable than average would suggest, their numbers in the mid to high $700,000 (actual numbers above for 2021) range for a new, modern condo. Fortunately, Oakville continues to grow and there are many opportunities to get in at the first stages of a new building project.

Oakville’s city bus is an equally accessible network of 20 routes connecting shopping, community centres, schools, and GO transfer points.

In addition to being covered by the Halton District School Board, the Halton Catholic District School Board, the Conseil scolaire Viamonde, and the Conseil scolaire catholique MonAvenir, there are over twenty private schools that service Oakville. Oakville’s only post-secondary institution, Sheridan College, has international recognition for the quality of its various art programs.
The active community in this not-so-small town is really what sets it apart from nearby cities.
