COVID-19 Updates

We understand that information is changing quickly during this time and that everyone is in need of different resources.

While COVID-19 has put the tourism industry on hold, we want to continue providing as much service as we can to those who are currently residing in Oakville and Halton Region during this time.

Effective June 11, 2021

The Town of Oakville has moved into Step One of the provincial re-opening plan. Step 1 focuses on resuming outdoor activities with gatherings of no more than 10 people, where the risk of transmission is lower.

Visit the Ontario Government‘s website for information.

Increased parking fines around popular parks

From May 15 to September 15, 2021, No Parking signs and increased fines will be implemented around popular parks to help reduce overcrowding, traffic congestion and illegal parking in these areas which can impact neighbourhood safety and access for emergency service vehicles.
