On November 14, 2016, Council passed By-law 2016-109, a by-law to re-divide, alter and increase the number of wards in the Town of Oakville. This by-law increases Oakville’s ward boundaries from six to seven, with adjustments to be made to all existing ward boundaries, except Ward 3. The new Ward 7 captures neighbourhoods north of Dundas Street with Burlington as the boundary to the west, and Eighth Line as the boundary to the east.

Section 222(1) of the Municipal Act allows for municipalities to pass a by-law to establish or change ward boundaries. Notice of the passing of such a by-law is required to be given to the public within 15 days of the passing. This ad is the Notice of Passing of By-law 2016-109. Under subsection 222(4) of the Municipal Act, any person or agency may appeal to the Ontario Municipal Board when they have an objection to the by-law passed by a municipality. Appeals must be filed with the Town Clerk and must be filed within 45 days of the by-law being passed. Last day for filing an appeal: December 29, 2016.

Any appeals of By-law 2016-109 must be filed with the Town Clerk, 1225 Trafalgar Road, Oakville, ON, L6H 0H3 setting out the reasons for the appeal together with a certified cheque or money order in the amount of $300 payable to the Minister of Finance. A copy of the appeal form is available online from the Ontario Municipal Board. Visit for details.
