Effective January 14, Oakville is under a stay-at-home order as part of the second provincial emergency due to COVID-19. Other restrictions are in effect and we must all follow public health guidelines. The town is reviewing the provincial declaration and will post any service impacts as soon as possible.

On March 31, 2015, meeting its commitment to keep the total property tax increase in line with inflation, Oakville Council unanimously approved a 2.79 per cent increase to the town’s portion of the tax bill for an overall property tax increase of 1.7 per cent. This means that residential property taxes would increase by $14.88 per $100,000 of assessment, meaning a home assessed at $400,000 would pay an additional $59.52 per year or $1.14 per week.
The increase to the town’s portion of the tax bill includes a 1.63 per cent increase for the costs of providing town programs and services, and a 1.16 per cent increase in funding for infrastructure renewal.
Council has approved the 2015 rates and fees recommended by the Budget Committee. On average, rates and fees will increase between two and three per cent which will generate close to $1.1 million in revenue to help fund valued programs and services. Visit the 2015 Rates and Fees page for details.
