In the community

Located on Oakville’s northernmost border, Ward 7 was historically dominated by farmland. Now it is made up of several of the town’s fastest-growing areas. Key growth areas include the Neyagawa Urban Core, Trafalgar Urban Core, and the upper portion of Dundas Urban Core, as well as the Hospital District which features a variety of healthcare facilities including the new Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital.  

Ward 7 makes up most of the town land north of Dundas Street with Burlington on its western border, Eighth Line to the east, and Milton to the north. The ward is made up of a wide range of land uses including employment, commercial, retail, offices, new medium-to high-density residential areas, some remaining agricultural land as well as recreational and green spaces.  

Looking to get active? There is no shortage of opportunities to get moving in Ward 7 — head to Palermo Park on the western border for a game of baseball, explore Sixteen Mile Creek and Neyagawa Woods or visit the Sixteen Mile Sports Complex and soon-to-be-completed cricket pitch. 

Historically, Trafalgar Road, located in the eastern portion of the ward, was an important transportation route and continues to serve as a significant entrance to Oakville and a physical link within the town.

The Town of Oakville was founded on the treaty lands and traditional territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. Ward 7 sits on Treaty 14 land which covers the majority of Oakville and beyond. This land was ceded to the crown in 1906 as part of the Head of the Lake Purchase which included land from Mississauga to Burlington.
