COVID-19 - Visit Oakville


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.
