The Town of Oakville is pleased to release the 2022 Annual Report, highlighting key achievements in delivering on the goals outlined in the 2019-2022 Strategic Plan and continued success in maintaining Oakville’s fiscal health.
The town’s independent external auditors, KPMG, have again provided an unqualified audit opinion on the Consolidated Financial Statements. An unqualified, or “clean” audit opinion indicates that the financial statements prepared by the town are a fair presentation of the town’s financial position and financial results for the past year.
“Along with the successful conclusion of the 2019–2022 Strategic Plan, Oakville made headway in a number of areas such as mobility and transportation strategy, digital transformation of many processes and reduction in the town’s energy use. I want to thank staff for their relentless efforts in delivering high-quality programs and services to make Oakville more livable.”Jane Clohecy, Chief Administrative Officer
The 2022 Annual Report is available in a web page format following the town’s refresh of the Town of Oakville website, with easier navigation and more accessible features. Anyone requiring a plain text version of the 2022 Annual Report can request by emailing email@example.com.
