Situated at the epicentre of Canada’s golden horseshoe, Oakville is a dynamic community of 187,300 people and is part the Greater Toronto Area. The GTA is home to 15 per cent of Canada's businesses and 16 per cent of the nation's workforce. One-quarter of Canada's population live within a 100 mile (160 km) radius of Oakville.
One of the reasons businesses choose Oakville is its proximity to major U.S. markets and nearly seven million potential consumers in southern Ontario. Oakville’s location relative to Toronto’s financial, technology and life sciences districts also provides premium access to capital, research resources and other complementary services.
As a major transportation corridor, Oakville is serviced by three 400 series highways, intermodal rail facilities, two international airports and two shipping ports. A short one hour drive from Oakville will take you to one of two US border crossings at Niagara Falls and Buffalo, New York.
