We Love Oakville!

The rich historic buildings, charming espresso bars and annual entertaining festivals are just a few reasons why we love this suburban town. In 2017, TFN Realty opened the doors to our second GTA location at Kerr Street and Speers Road in Oakville.  The community has welcomed us with open arms and since our move we’ve been thrilled to share how great the area is. They truly have a little bit of something for everyone and maybe that’s why the area is rapidly growing. Did you know that Oakville is one of the most densely populated areas of Canada?  We started to ask ourselves, what else is so great about this town? Why are more and more people moving to Oakville? Let’s check it out!

Dynamic Corporations

Oakville is home to some of the largest national and international dynamic corporations. Think Ford Motor Company, UTC Aerospace Systems and even the Head Quarters for your favourite “cup of Joe” Tim Horton’s Coffee! Statistics prove that the cities unemployment rate has been consistently below the provincial unemployment rate and has been sloping downwards since 2011. Getting to work shouldn’t be a setback either; you have close proximity to major highways, two international airports and Go Train/Via Rail access.


Oakville has the highest ratios of private schools to student population in the country. Appleby College, one of the leading independent schools, consists of spacious grounds with five playing fields, five tennis courts, three squash courts, a chapel and even a 20m swimming pool. Being a resident of Oakville also means having more options to post secondary schools. Within a one hour radius you’ll find around eight different universities.

Health Care

We all know how overwhelming a trip to the hospital can be. Thankfully, to meet the needs of Oakville’s growing population, a brand new hospital was constructed in 2015. Conveniently located on the corner of Third Line and Dundas, the facility has the capacity to hold over 600 inpatient beds! As a bonus, 80% of these beds are situated in private rooms. Private rooms can reduce medical errors, speed up recovery rates and create happier patients. Additionally, local health focused businesses have played a key role in this community. Businesses have provided the town with a selection of popular activities such as hot yoga, Pilates and Group Training.


With all that life has us juggling, it can be difficult  to carve out a few hours to spend with friends. Located on the shores of Bronte you’ll find an abundance of festivals, restaurants, pubs and entertainment that will be hard to pass up! We recommend joining in and raising your glass to the “Taste of Oakville” Benefit from an exceptional prix – fixe lakeside dining experience with some friends, family or your significant other. Meet local artists, designers and creators with “Art in The Park”

So let’s face it. If you’re thinking about leaving your current city, Oakville is a great neighbourhood to move to. If there’s anything we’ve missed, be sure to let us know on Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter.
