We Love Oakville, Stop Amalgamation!
The provincial government has started consultation with the regions and municipalities in Ontario with the possible goal to amalgamate the regions. For us in Halton Region, that could mean the amalgamation of Oakville, Burlington, Milton, and Halton Hills.  A grass roots group in the Oakville area has started a campaign to stop this. The campaign is called “We Love Oakville, Stop Amalgamation”. The campaign is based on:
1) Studies have shown that costs rise after amalgamations with more expensive bureaucracies and higher property taxes.
2) Our current system and structure works well. Why try to fix something that isn’t broken? We already have affordable, efficient services from the town of Oakville and Halton Region as well as strong, effective representation.
3) Amalgamations don’t bring any benefits. Evidence from many studies show over and over that amalgamations don’t save money or improve services. In fact the opposite is true. Amalgamations bring years of service disruption, reduction and loss of local decision making.
For more information and to donate to the campaign, go to
An article in the Oakville Beaver has additional information.

Oakville Transit Update


Updates from Barry Cole, Director of Oakville Transit

Beginning on December 31, 2017 the Clearview area will be receiving improved access to Oakville Transit services.  Oakville Transit’s Route 4 (Speers/Cornwall) will be shortened in the west end to allow time for it to be rerouted at the east end via Ford, Sheridan Garden Drive, and Winston Churchill.  This will provide all day, everyday service to the south Clearview area.  Route 4 provides direct access to the Clarkson GO, Oakville GO, and Bronte GO while also connecting to Route 12 which will continue to serve the north area 

of Clearview.


In addition, the last two scheduled evening trips on Routes 12 and 11 are being discontinued and replaced with Oakville Transit’s new Home to Hub service providing transportation from your residence to the nearest transit hub where you can connect with regular service.  Later in January this Home to Hub service will also be made available on weekends. 


Please visit the Oakville Transit website for complete details, maps and schedules.

Clearview Environment


Oakville Coyote Program


Check out our coyote reporting form, that is now compatible with mobile devices and also allows users to upload pictures and video and post to social media. Help keep your community coyote aware!


Coyotes are found in urban environments throughout North America

Though there is a rise in awareness that coyotes are around, there is still a great deal of misunderstanding among residents about coyote behaviour and their role in our urban ecology. Coyotes help keep rodent populations in check. They usually steer clear of residential areas and humans, and prefer to make their homes in large parks and woodlands. However, they will occasionally seek food or shelter in residential neighbourhoods if the opportunity arises.


While seeing a coyote in Oakville is not necessarily cause for alarm, it can be concerning when coyotes come a bit too close for comfort. The town’s coyote hazing video explains what to do if you encounter a coyote on your property, and shows you how to haze or scare them away.

If embraced by the entire community, repeated hazing ensures coyotes maintain their fear of humans and know our homes are off limits.


Reducing coyote conflicts

Feeding coyotes, running from them and allowing pets to roam off-leash have contributed to coyotes losing their inhibitions towards people. There are a number of things we can all do to help reduce human-coyote conflicts:

  • Discourage coyotes from entering your property by removing brush piles or clearing areas of debris that may be perceived as a resting place or den.
  • Don't feed coyotes. Ensure garbage, bird feed and pet food is inaccessible.
  • Do not leave food waste in town garbage cans.
  • Keep pets attended and on leash. The town's by-laws require pets to be on leash except in designated areas (off-leash parks). Supervise animals when they are in the yard. Cats should not be permitted to roam freely.
  • Do not turn your back on, or run from a coyote. Stand tall, wave your arms and make lots of noise.

Coyote sightings and map

Mange is circulating in some coyote populations in Oakville which has led to these animals frequenting residential neighbourhoods to seek warmth and find easy food such as birdseed and garbage. Mange is not a threat to humans or pets and does not directly lead to increased aggression. To learn more please see our Coyote Fact Sheet (pdf).


Through the coyote reporting form, the town is working with the Oakville Humane Society to assist them in locating and treating infected coyotes. Please report coyote sightings and activity through this system. If there is an immediate risk to safety call 911 as the reporting system is not designed to respond to these types of calls.


Visit the coyote sightings map to learn where coyotes have been observed. This mapping reflects reported sightings and is not meant to indicate the number of coyotes present or a complete profile of where coyotes are present in Oakville. It provides the town and residents with useful information on understanding where the possibility of encountering a coyote may be more prevalent.

Capture and relocation of coyotes to more than one kilometre away is not permitted under the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act. Research shows wildlife relocated from urban areas usually return or become a problem elsewhere. In addition, when coyotes are hunted or lethally destroyed, they compensate by producing larger litters and expanding their range. Only in rare cases where an individual coyote is demonstrating unusual / aggressive behaviour or severe trauma or illness do animal control agencies capture coyotes.


If a coyote poses an immediate threat to safety, call 911.

Contact the Oakville Humane Society at 905-845-1551 if you encounter a coyote you believe to be sick or injured.

In addition, the town offers a number of other resources and links on coyote awareness and co-existence:
