Oakville’s population has been steadily growing, and it is now home to more than 200,000 residents.

As a result, Oakville has been designated as an Urban Growth Centre (UGC) by the Ontario government, which will accommodate a significant portion of future population and employment growth.
Growth of Real Estate
The growth of real estate in Oakville is evident in the development of various neighbourhoods, including the recently designated Midtown Oakville as an Urban Growth Centre (UGC). Midtown Oakville is a 100-hectare area located along the south side of the Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW), between Sixteen Mile Creek and Chartwell Road, and north of Cornwall Road. It features a key transit hub — Oakville GO Station — which provides access to multiple public transit systems and is the busiest stop in the entire GO Transit system. The growth plan for Midtown Oakville includes new transits and many new developments, which provide many benefits and opportunities for urban growth.

The town has a strong focus on creating vibrant and complete communities that attract different users throughout the day. The local amenities in Oakville’s neighbourhoods contribute to the overall livability of the town and make it an attractive place to live, work, and play.
Transit Options
Oakville has a comprehensive transit system that includes Oakville Transit, GO Transit, and Via Rail. Oakville Transit provides local bus services throughout the town, and in 2021, the system decided to provide free travel to kids aged 12 and under, and in 2023, a permanent decision was made to provide free travel to youth aged 13 to 19 and seniors aged 65 and above, to promote sustainability and enhance the community. The town is also planning to develop bus rapid transit systems that will originate in Midtown Oakville and connect with the broader Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) transportation network. These transit options make it convenient for residents to travel within Oakville and to other parts of the Greater Toronto Area.
