What’s your view of Oakville and Bronte Harbours? Now’s your chance to share your input and help shape the future of the harbours by providing input into the town’s first Harbours Master Plan addressing both harbours under one vision and strategy.

“Oakville’s harbours benefit everyone so it’s important that we hear the perspectives of as many residents, businesses and community groups as possible,” said Chris Mark, director of the Parks and Open Space department. “With help from key stakeholders and the public, our goal is to establish a long-term strategy for harbour development that supports the changing and growing nature of the community.”

Through a Request for Proposals (RFP) process the town retained The Planning Partnership, Shoreplan Engineering and Touristics to develop a Harbours Master Plan focusing on four key objectives:

  1. Providing recommendations on improved access, connectivity, recreational amenities and priorities for both harbours.
  2. Determining the future use of the Bronte Marina Building.
  3. Updating the Oakville Harbours Strategic Business Plan.
  4. Completing Phase Two of the Recreational Boating Feasibility and Capacity Study including investigating potential locations for a new marina.

Members of the public are invited to share their view of the harbours at one of two community workshops on Tuesday, May 3 at 3 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. at the Queen Elizabeth Park Community and Cultural Centre (QEPCCC) located at 2302 Bridge Road.

Presentation materials will be available on the town’s website as of May 4, 2016. Anyone unable to attend the workshops are encouraged to share their comments by emailing<>
