Ajax is part of Durham Region, one of the fastest growing areas of Ontario. The population of Ajax is approximately 91,000, with hundreds of new homes being built every year. The Town has a vibrant business community as well, with more than 1,900 businesses and a labour force of close to 42,000. Our retail sector includes a regional shopping centre at Harwood Ave. N and Highway 2 (Kingston Rd.), along with many smaller outlets.
Residents enjoy a full range of excellent municipal services of city quality in a mid-sized town setting. We enjoy and strive to preserve a rich natural heritage, including waterways such as Duffins and Carruthers Creek and, most importantly, Lake Ontario. Ajax’s six kilometres of waterfront remain largely undeveloped for the enjoyment of everyone, with acres of parkland and natural areas.
As a rapidly-growing community, Ajax includes a vibrant mix of established and new neighbourhoods. Ajax is that perfect place to call home, it is close enough to the City of Toronto and far enough away that housing prices are very resonable.
