Oakville is a federal electoral district in Ontario, Canada, that has been represented in the Canadian House of Commons since 1997.

History[edit]

It was created in 1996 from parts of Halton and Oakville—Milton ridings.

It consisted initially of the part of the Town of Oakville lying southeast of the Queen Elizabeth Way and Upper Middle Road.

In 2003, it was redefined to consist of the part of the Town of Oakville lying southeast of a line drawn from the northeastern town limit southwest along Dundas Street East, southeast along Eight Line and southwest along Upper Middle Road to the southwestern town limit.

The current boundaries include the neighbourhoods of Lakeshore Woods, Bronte, Hopedale, Coronation Park, Kerr Village, Old Oakville, Eastlake, Glen Abbey, College Park, Iroquois Ridge, Clearview, and Joshua Creek.

Future[edit]

The 2012 federal electoral boundaries redistribution concluded with no changes proposed for the electoral district of Oakville.[3] It will continue to be contested on its current boundaries in future elections until, at the earliest, the following electoral boundaries redistribution.
