Meet Jeff Knoll
I have had the honour of serving as Oakville’s Ward 5 Regional and Town Councillor since being first elected in 2000 and re-elected in subsequent elections in 2002, 2006, 2010 and 2014. A local entrepreneur and employer, I am also the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Film.Ca Cinemas in Oakville.
As Town and Regional Councillor, I have served on almost every committee and board within the municipalities I represent on behalf of the residents of Ward 5. I am currently a member of the Halton Police Services Board and am Chair of the Oakville Public Library. I am also a member of the Oakville Administrative Services Committee, the Halton Administration & Finance Committee and as the Halton representative on the Community Environment and Noise Advisory Committee at the GTAA (Toronto Pearson Airport).
In addition to my current committee and board experience, I have served on the boards of the Halton Health Care Services Corporation, the Halton Children’s Aid Society, and the Oakville & Milton Humane Society. I also proudly served as a Board Member and President of the Halton Community Housing Corporation for more than ten years.
Outside of my Council responsibilities, I am a member of the Oakville Chamber of Commerce and am a member and active volunteer with the Oak Park Neighbourhood Centre where my wife Michelle is the Executive Director. I am also a long-time member, former chairman and the current group sponsor of the 1st Trafalgar Scouts, and a founding member and volunteer with the Trafalgar Township Historical Society, a Member of the Rotary Club of Oakville Trafalgar and the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 114.
My life-long interests in the film industry stem from a part-time job at a local movie theatre I had as a young teen in Windsor, where I grew up. I went on to study Political Science and Communications (film and television) at the University of Windsor.
Michelle and I have lived in Oak Park for 19 years. We’ve raised five kids here, and are enjoying time with our four grandchildren and our rambunctious rescue beagle, Roxas.
