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.
On November 14, 2016, Council passed By-law 2016-109, that increases the town’s wards from six to seven and increases the size of Town Council to 15 (14 councillors, plus a Mayor). These changes came into effect for the 2018 municipal election, held Monday, October 22, 2018.
With the new seven-ward boundary system, two members of Council will continue to be elected for each of the seven wards.
Adjustments were made to all existing ward boundaries except Ward 3. Review the ward boundary descriptions (pdf).

Oakville's previous six ward system had been in place since 1990. Two councillors were elected for each ward, one Town Councillor, and one Town and Regional Councillor.
