Oakville is a Community of Contrasts

Being plugged in locally - where we live and play - builds local knowledge, drives success and creates a thriving community. Oakville's 2015 Vital Signs tells the story of Two Oakvilles and aims to identify the major issues affecting quality of life in the Oakville community. It also shines a light on the good work being done by charitable agencies, citizens and local governments to improve the lives of vulnerable individuals and families.

We believe the report will encourage more voices to join the conversation about how we can learn more, do more and give more to create a community where everyone feels they belong.

Learn more about the four key issues in Oakville's Vital Signs 2015:

  • Equity gap
  • Affordable Housing
  • Inclusion
  • Mental Health

Learn More. Do More. Give More.

The 2015 Vital Signs® report is the first step toward raising awareness of our community’s needs and its resources. We don’t have the solutions, but we can create opportunities for problem-solving and collaboration.
