Town facilities closed due to severe weather

All programs cancelled for February 8

Effective immediately, the Town of Oakville is closing its facilities due to severe weather. This includes Town Hall, all community, youth and seniors centres, as well as arenas, pools, libraries, the Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts and the Oakville Museum. All scheduled town-run programs and rentals at these facilities are also cancelled. Emergency and essential services will continue to operate.

Oakville Transit buses, including care-A-van, are running about 15 to 20 minutes behind schedule and will continue operating until the end of today’s scheduled service. Visit the Oakville Transit website for the latest service updates.

Snow-clearing crews have been out since early morning and continue to clear primary and secondary roads. Residential streets will be plowed after the snowstorm ends. Residents are asked to be patient and not to park on the roads if possible to allow the plows to pass. For information about snow removal and winter road maintenance, please visit the town’s Snow Clearing page or call the town’s snow information line at 905-815-5999.

Recreation and Culture facilities and programs are expected to reopen tomorrow as scheduled. Please visit for the most current information on town closures and program cancellations, or follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
