If you live in Oakville you know it’s a pretty great place to be. And now, MoneySense.ca has declared this town to be the best place to live in Canada. I guess we can expect a lot of people to be checking out our community and one of the things they’ll discover is going to be a surprise.

We have, what may be, the highest concentration of superb independent schools anywhere. Just think for a moment about other cities and towns in Canada. It would be surprising if you could find one that had such an exciting breadth and depth of schooling options.

Add that to all of the great qualities pointed out in the MoneySense article – the best place to live overall, the best place for new Canadians, the third best place to retire and the fifth best place to raise a family – and you’ve got a winning recipe for raising thriving children.

The 11 member schools of OIS, offer a comprehensive choice for virtually every learning situation and each one of them has a powerful focus on student-centred education. So if you’re looking for primary, elementary, secondary, Montessori, International Baccalaureate, Advanced Placement (AP), AP Capstone, traditional, progressive, religious-based, boarding, single-gender and co-educational schools – we’ve got you covered.

For a first-hand experience of our schools, please mark Saturday, October 20 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in your calendar. That’s when each of our member schools will be happy to welcome you to the All School Open House. It’s a great opportunity to meet some of the dedicated professionals at each school and to learn which one might be best for your family.

We look forward to seeing you on October 20 and sharing our perspective on why Oakville is indeed the best place to live in Canada!
