Oxford is a small farming town located in North Canterbury, only 50 minutes from the major South Island city of Christchurch, and is largely a service centre for the rural Waimakiriri District. It is one of four major towns in North Canterbury, which have a combined population of around 47, 000.

The town offers a range of shops and services, including pre-school, primary, and secondary schools. All the services expected of a major city and tourist destination are available in Christchurch, including university and polytechnic facilities. There are many outdoor activities like fishing, hunting, tramping, mountain-biking and skiing, with mountains a short distance away.
