Located in the heart of Southwestern Ontario, Oxford is a picturesque blend of rural and urban, business and agriculture.
Oxford encompasses the towns of Ingersoll and Tillsonburg, the city of Woodstock, and the municipalities of Norwich, South-West Oxford, Zorra, Blandford-Blenheim, and East-Zorra-Tavistock.
The positive attributes of Oxford are due to the attitude and character of our citizens. Oxford’s people are our strength and our location is our asset.
Hard- working, honest and caring are three of the attributes that best describe the people of Oxford, always have and always will.
Our strategical geographic location, in the midst of Canada’s prime agricultural land and Ontario’s industrial basin, give Oxford an advantage that other communities could only look at with envy.
Our location, relative to transportation routes, is amongst the best in North America. Main line railway routes and the 400 series highways are assets to be cherished by all of us.
A skilled workforce and business friendly community’s work together to tell the world that Oxford is the place to be.
Manufacturing is the major industry, with auto parts makers centered around the CAMI plant in Ingersoll and the Toyota Plant in Woodstock.
Agriculture is also an important part of the economy, with dairy products and tobacco being the most abundant commodities. Over 2000 farms in Oxford produce dairy, beef, hog, poultry, cash crops, fruits and vegetables and specialty products.
In 2015 Elections Canada brought in boundary changes to the riding of Oxford to include part of the Country of Brant lying westerly of Etonia Road and East Quarter Townline Road.
