Wouldn’t you love to have a convenient and easy way to interact and engage with the Town? Well now, businesses and residents alike can certainly do that!

Mayor Rob Burton says that the app was developed to make it easy for residents to stay updated with information about the town just by using their smartphone. This new ability to have access to Oakville-related information anytime and from wherever you may be is wholly supported by the Council. Major Burton adds that the Council supports and encourages new and state-of-the-art ideas to communicate and connect with residents.

Once downloaded, the Oakville app will give you easy and fast access to town services, events, news, and updates. This is not all the app is good for either. With the app, you can submit a service request, share a concern, follow Oakville’s social media channels, connect with Council members and the Mayor himself, plus easily use Active Oakville, the recreational drop-in program app. If you think the benefits of having the app in your device stops there, well you’re wrong! It also has additional features which includes timely alerts regarding weather events and service disruptions and also allows users to locate the nearest facilities, parks, trails, and cycle ways.
More Oakville Innovations
The new mobile app is just one of the many innovative online services that the Town has made available for residents via Oakville.ca. There’s FindOakville, which is just a site selection tool that lets users look for available industrial and commercial buildings plus vacant employment land. There’s also a new interactive mapping tool for sports field amenities, parks, and building permits as well as the form for the temporary on-street parking permit.
New features will be added to the Oakville app as new services become available and as the Town continues to strive to provide residents and the community with ways for a better government. In fact, residents are in for a new pleasant surprise at a later time this year when Oakville Transit will be implementing a new GPS technology-based Intelligent Transport System that will be able to track buses in real-time.
