Sponsorship & Advertising
Community and Corporate Partnerships program
The Corporate Partnerships program forms partnerships between the Town of Oakville's Recreation and Culture department and community businesses and organizations. Essential services are funded through the town; however, sponsorships, donations and advertising revenues make it possible for the town to expand its programs, services and initiatives while reducing the need for tax increases or additional user fees.
Projects and events
Local businesses, organizations, service clubs, community groups and individuals can provide support through cash contributions, in-kind services, joint promotions, and/or product donations. Below is a list of some of the initiatives that the town has provided thanks to generous support from the community:
- Fee assistance for children and youth to participate in recreational programs
- Youth Centre facility enhancement
- Special events such as the Oakville Santa Claus Parade, Community Spirit Awards, and Make Your Move Family Day
- Enhanced programming at the Oakville Centre, including some free and pay-what-you-can performances.
Naming opportunities are available for the interior spaces at Sixteen Mile Sports Complex including ice surfaces, dressing rooms and multipurpose rooms.

The Recreation and Culture department is now accepting advertising submissions for the 2015 Spring/Summer program guide. This guide will be available to the public in January 2015.
Open the corporate advertising submission form (106 kB) for more information. The deadline for advertising submissions is November 3, 2014.
Please note: We have new size requirements. Please open the Brochure Advertising Sizes – Corporate pdf (19 kB) for examples. File specifications are also noted on the submission form.
Advertising space is limited and submission before deadline date DOES NOT ensure ad placement. The Town of Oakville holds the right to judge acceptability of ad subject and quality. Advertising submissions will not be accepted until both payment and acceptable electronic artwork have been received. Advertising space cannot be reserved.
The town's Parks, Recreation and Culture guide continues to be one of Oakville's most sought-after guides for program information. Advertisements are placed in the easily located advertising section of the guide and will be posted online as an interactive PDF with a direct link to your website. You can showcase your ad in full colour for no extra cost!
Opportunities to advertise on the Parks, Recreation and Culture guide covers are also available. Download the corporate advertising rate sheet (pdf, 91 kB).
