Oakville Community Profile

Submitted ByThe Corporation of the Town of Oakville

Oakville’s new Community Profile, a 12-page investment attraction publication, spotlights the benefits of choosing Oakville as a location for business. Through the creation of the profile, the department connected and engaged with community partners, organizations, and industry-leading, local and foreign owned companies to highlight their presence and innovative initiatives in the community. The collaborative approach used to develop the profile allowed the department to further build relationships with key businesses and local organizations.

The profile highlights key assets for business investment that are unique to Oakville, including the surplus of local talent; Sheridan College, the world’s leading animation school; and spotlighting the foreign-owned industry leading companies such as Siemens that have found success through a location in Oakville.

In addition to the advantages of choosing a location in Oakville, the profile features key information for businesses to make an investment decision, including demographic data, top industries, and real estate market trends.

The information featured in the profile can be used to service both of the department’s key areas of focus, business retention and expansion and new investment. Oakville’s Economic Development Strategy identifies that there is a labour surplus with the skills to work in finance and insurance, and professional, scientific and technical services. The profile is a useful tool to share with potential investors in these sectors when looking to move or relocate to Oakville.

The profile is a continuation and supporting document of Oakville’s Where Living Works campaign that was launched in 2021 to generate awareness and attract new investment to Oakville’s office market.

The Community Profile launched at the beginning of February 2022 and is available both digitally on the Invest Oakville website and in print. The profile is projected to reach up to 10,000 potential investors in the next year.
