This affluent riding is located about 40 kilometres west of Toronto and lies on the north shore of Lake Ontario.
It comprises that part of Oakville south of Upper Middle Road West and Upper Middle Road East.
As a result of the 1999 redistribution, the new riding of Oakville combined one-third of Halton Centre with almost all of the old Oakville riding.
Population: 119,649 (2011 census; an increase of 5.2% from 2006)
Liberal Kevin Flynn has been popular in Oakville since his election in 2003. He beat PC Larry Scott by 4,580 votes in 2011. He beat PC Rick Byers by more than 7,100 votes in 2007 election. And he topped Tory Kurt Franklin by 3,408 votes in 2003.
In the old Oakville riding, PC Gary Carr was elected in 1990, 1995, and again in the redistributed Oakville riding in 1999. He was then appointed Speaker of the legislature. In January 2003, Carr announced his intention to not run in the next election.
In the old riding of Halton Centre, which was formed in 1987, Liberal Barb Sullivan won in 1987 and 1990. She was defeated in 1995 by Tory Terence Young. Young lost the party nomination for this seat after Mike Harris's government reduced the overall number of provincial ridings in 1996.
Gary Carr won the nomination race and the 1999 election in the riding, but stayed for only one term. Disagreeing with the party's direction, Carr chose not to run in 2003. He ran federally in the Halton riding in 2004, and won, but was defeated in 2006.
