Oakville Named Best Place to Live in Canada

It will come as no surprise to most West Harbour Residents, nestled as we are between Kerr Village, Downtown Oakville, and Lake Ontario, but the Town of Oakville recently earned MoneySense Magazine’s coveted “Best Place to Live in Canada” for 2018.

Considering that Canada ranks at or the near the top of most every list of the best countries to live in the World, and that West Harbour can arguably boast more advantages than anywhere in Oakville, you have a very nice place to live, regardless of where you compare.
