Economic Development Plan 2024-2029

The Town of Oakville is preparing an update to its Economic Development Plan for the 2024-2029 five-year period.

A new economic development plan is underway

As Oakville continues to grow and thrive, it remains a desired place to live with a strong, growing, and educated workforce to support the economy. 

A growing community is an opportunity for economic development through an increased talent pool and business activity. On the other hand, increased focus must be given to keep pace with opportunities and trends. 

Assisting the town is Deloitte LLP's Economic Advisory team.
