Oak Ridges is an unincorporated community in Ontario, Canada, and has been part of Richmond Hill since 1971.
It forms the northern portion of the municipality's boundary, where it borders Aurora. Located about 20 km north of Toronto, it has a population of approximately 36,000 people (est. 2015).
It is located north of Richmond Hill proper, east of King City, immediately south of Aurora, and west of Whitchurch-Stouffville. Oak Ridges was established along Yonge Street in 1799 by Joseph Genevi?ve and a group of French Royalists, who were granted land to settle by the British government.
They were also provided with rations and agricultural implements.
It was originally named Windham in honour of Genevi?ve's friend William Windham, Secretary at War for Britain at the time. Genevi?ve soon departed to search for another site to settle, and by 1840 the settlement and the area from the King-Vaughan town line to the 15th sideroad became known as Oak Ridges.
This included lots 61 to 70, the western half of which were in King, and the eastern half in the township of Whitchurch. Oak Ridges now boasts 9 publicly funded elementary schools and 1 private; 5 public, 4 catholic; 8 English, 1 French. Bond Lake Public School, Father Frederick McGinn, Our Lady of Hope Catholic School, Our Lady of the Annunciation Catholic Elementary School, Oak Ridges Public School, Lake Wilcox Public School, Windham Ridge Public School, Kettle Lakes Public School and Acad?mie de la Moraine (Conseil scolaire de district Centre-Sud-Ouest, up to grade 8).
