Oakville Wildlife Strategy
To assist residents in protecting our wildlife and to reduce conflict situations with wildlife, Council approved the draft Oakville Wildlife Strategy and Wildlife Conflict Guidelines on June 20, 2011. These documents were developed with input from stakeholders including the Ministry of Natural Resources, the Oakville Milton Humane Society and Conservation Halton.

As part of the Oakville Wildlife Strategy, it was recommended that education form a key part in supporting a livable relationship between residents and wildlife. The more we understand about our environment, the better we are able to manage our interactions and expectations and appreciate the benefits of living in such a biodiverse area. The town has put together a number of resources to support this program.
