Halton Region, which was incorporated in 1974 to comprise of four municipalities: The City of Burlington and the Towns of Halton Hills, Milton and Oakville. The Town of Oakville and the City of Burlington make up the urban area to the south, generally along the lakeshore and the Towns of Halton Hills and Milton make up the largely rural area to the north, clustered around the 401 and 407. While these communities were originally bedroom communities to nearby Hamilton and TOronto, today they are self-sufficient communities, with a complete range of educational, cultural and recreational facilities.

Burlington Lakeshore area The first European to visit the area was the French explorer and fur trader Oavelier de la Salle and Louis Joliet, who arrived at Burlngton Bay in 1669 via the Grand River from Lake Erie on their return from Lake Superior. In 1821 Jasper Martin from Newcastle England built a grist mill along the banks of the Sixteen Mile Creek, near today's Milton, founding a settlement of 60 people first called "Martin's Mills" which had an ashery, small store and a post office.

Oakville was founded in 1827 by Colonel William Chisholm (1788-1842), who became a merchant and shipbuilder on 960 acres granted at the mouth of Sixteen Mile Creek, where he soon established the first privately owned harbour in Upper Canada and handled trade between Hamilton and Toronto. When the railway reached Milton in 1877, the town added several brickyards by the escarpment around Milton Heights.

After World War II, Halton entered into a period of prosperity and rapid growth, and by the early 1970s, Halton's population grew by 400 per cent as job opportunities and cheaper "country" living attracted residents.

The Oakville Ford Plant was built in 1952 and created 5,000 industrial jobs and prompted many auto suppliers to build in the area. In 1974, Halton County was reorganized into the Regional Municipality of Halton with four restructured municipalities (Burlington, Halton Hills, Milton and Oakville).
