Sponsorship & Advertising
Community and Corporate Partnerships program
The Corporate Partnerships program forms partnerships between the Town of Oakville's Recreation and Culture department and community businesses and organizations. Essential services are funded through the town; however, sponsorships, donations and advertising revenues make it possible for the town to expand its programs, services and initiatives while reducing the need for tax increases or additional user fees.
Projects and events
Local businesses, organizations, service clubs, community groups and individuals can provide support through cash contributions, in-kind services, joint promotions, and/or product donations. Below is a list of some of the initiatives that the town has provided thanks to generous support from the community:
- Fee assistance for children and youth to participate in recreational programs
- Youth Centre facility enhancement
- Special events such as the Oakville Santa Claus Parade, Community Spirit Awards, and Make Your Move Family Day
- Enhanced programming at the Oakville Centre, including some free and pay-what-you-can performances.
Naming opportunities are available for the interior spaces at Sixteen Mile Sports Complex including ice surfaces, dressing rooms and multipurpose rooms.

Advertising in the Parks, Recreation and Culture program guide
The Recreation and Culture department will begin accepting advertising submissions for the 2014 Spring/Summer program guide in October. To be added to the contact list regarding advertising in the program guide, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
With 25,000 brochures published, the town's Parks, Recreation and Culture guide continues to be one of Oakville's most sought-after guides for program information. Advertisements are placed in the easily-located advertising section of the guide. Your ad will be included in an interactive pdf of the guide, posted online with a direct link to your website. Visit the Program Registration page to see the current Parks, Recreation and Culture guide.
Opportunities to advertise on the Parks, Recreation and Culture guide covers are also available. Download the corporate advertising rate sheet (pdf, 53 kB).
Who can purchase ad space?
Advertisers must be Oakville-based and recreation, leisure or education oriented, or a Town of Oakville Community and Corporate Partner. Inclusion of corporate advertising is at the discretion of the Town of Oakville.
If you are you a CORE member wishing to advertise, or a not-for-profit organization and want more information about CORE, please visit the CORE page.
Submitting an ad
Ads are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis until advertising space is full. Space is limited and submitting before the deadline date does not ensure ad placement. The town holds the right to judge acceptability of ad subject and quality.
Advertisements are now accepted in full-colour at no extra charge! You will be asked to resubmit your electronic artwork file if the advertisement is not the correct size or the quality is poor.
Electronic proofs and receipts will be sent by request only
Please make a note on your submission form if you wish to be sent an electronic proof or receipt. You may also review your final ad submission before it goes to print by visiting the Recreation and Culture department.
For more information on brochure advertising, please contact Joanne Locker at 905-845-6601, ext. 3147 or email@example.com.
