Oakville has scored favourably with MoneySense Magazine once again, as it has been named Ontario’s best place to raise children and the province’s fourth-best place to live overall.

This is the second consecutive year Oakville has been named Ontario’s best place to raise children.

The rankings examined 417 towns and cities across Canada — double the number of contenders included in last year’s rankings.

It ranked municipalities on numerous factors including crime rate, arts and community, affordability, taxes, and weather.

Among Ontario municipalities, Oakville was named the fourth best place to live overall.

Burlington and Halton Hills were also included in the top 10.

“Council is proud to see Oakville’s livability once again being recognized in these national rankings,” said Mayor Rob Burton in a media release.

“I also congratulate our neighbouring communities in Halton for their similarly stellar rankings across the board.”

More than 55 per cent of households in Oakville have children living in them and almost 20 per cent of Oakville residents are younger than 15.

“As someone who chose Oakville to raise a family more than 20 years ago, this comes as no surprise,” said Burton.

“Oakville is among the healthiest, safest communities in Canada, with tremendous schools and a strong sense of community.”
