As the province plans for recovery, the town is beginning to carefully and responsibly bring back services and reopen some public spaces, programs and services. Provincial emergency orders and the town’s physical distancing by-law remain in effect. We must all continue to follow guidelines from Public Health officials.
New for 2019: In lieu of the town's Oakville Conserves Energy Fair and Keep Calm and Adapt events, the town will instead host the 2019 climateXchange. The climateXchange hopes to engage residents in a number of climate change awareness events linking Earth Day to Emergency Preparedness Week.
Take part in one or all of these educational and fun activities.

The Repair Cafe is designed to return broken items back to their usable form with the help of several community volunteers equipped with skills to fix small electronics, appliances, textiles, pottery and more. The more items that are repaired results in less items that end up in the landfill. Come bring your broken items and see if one of the Fixers can help you!
