The Digital Strategy is Oakville’s plan to becoming to the most digitally connected community in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).
The strategy identifies the following areas of focus to move the town’s digital transformation forward:
Engagement with citizens is at the core of the digital strategy and we are committed to engaging community members early and often so that digital services are designed to meet your needs and expectations.

Oakville produces large amounts of data about places, people and events. This information will help us make better, evidence-based decisions to serve the community.
We are committed to being open, accessible and accountable. We will build on our open data program and continue to share our data to see what’s possible when government and the community collaborate.
Becoming the most digitally connected community in the GTA will require strong partnerships with academic and private sector organizations.
Smart city technologies use sensors to connect things, such as building controls, environmental management, and video monitoring, to the internet. These sensors collect data – everything from wear and tear on an engine, to the temperature of a building, to traffic volume.
Smart technology is changing how municipalities solve urban challenges related to transit, emissions, traffic, energy management, economic development and more.
