Meet Jeff Knoll
I have been honoured to serve as Oakville’s Ward 5 Regional and Town Councillor since being first elected in 2000. As a local entrepreneur and employer, I am 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. Currently, I am the Chair of the Halton Police Board and Chair of the Oakville Public Library.
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 and Chair of the Halton Health and Community Services Committee for more than ten years.
Outside of my Council responsibilities, I am a member of the Oakville Chamber of Commerce and an 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, a founding member and volunteer with the Trafalgar Township Historical Society, and a Member of the Rotary Club of Oakville Trafalgar, the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 114 and I serve on the Board of Directors of Oakville Improv Theatre Company.
In 2022 I was honoured to be the recipient of Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee Award. In 2021, I received the Paul Harris Fellowship and, through my business, the Oakville Award for Business Excellence.
Michelle and I have lived in Oak Park for 23 years. We’ve raised five kids here (Bryn is the Managing Director of Film.Ca Cinermas Inc.; Sarah is a Senior Sales Executive with Marriott International; Evan operates a small business; Dylan is a Member of the Canadian Armed Forces and David is in 3rd University at McMaster) and enjoy time with our seven grandchildren, our rambunctious rescue beagle, Roxas, and our cat Kodak.
