There is plenty of real estate Oakville Ontario for those seeking to become new residents. One of Canada’s most livable towns, Oakville offers much to do for its residents. The town is big enough to give people a city feel, yet small enough to give you the down home atmosphere of the small town. With a population of just under 200,000, it’s a small city that just feels a lot like home. For those looking to settle somewhere, there are a lot of jobs available. The local economy does pretty well, especially with several major corporations that have their headquarters in Oakville. Businesses from the automobile industry to the pharmaceutical industry have their homes right in Oakville.
The town of Oakville began years ago in the late 1700s when it was settled by British immigrants. The town developed into a haven for shipbuilding and later a foundry was built. With work available, more and more people moved into the area until the foundry closed in the 1850s. Other new businesses, including basket-making, evolved and more and more people moved into the area. Real estate Oakville Ontario has always been readily available. Several towns developed around Oakville as well. Towns like Palermo, Sheridan, and Bronte grew and then merged into the town of Oakville in the early 1960s. Today, there are 13 separate, distinct neighborhoods that make up the larger town of Oakville.
Depending upon your preference, you can find real estate Oakville Ontario on the lake, in the heart of the downtown area, or in a more rural-type setting.
