The Town of Ajax was recently presented with the prestigious CompetitiveReady Seal. After completing a rigorous evaluation of the Town's capacity to sustain business development, Ajax is the first Canadian community to earn the sought after designation.
The CompetitiveReady Scorecard is based on the stringent criteria site selectors use when screening communities for potential development. Over 175 factors were audited, falling into 10 categories—global positioning, real estate, physical infrastructure, human capital, organizational effectiveness, business climate, business resources, living environment, mitigated risks, and sustainable practices.
Ajax earned its highest scores in physical infrastructure, organizational effectiveness, sustainable practices, real estate, and business climate.
"Ajax is a well-located community along Hwy 401 and in close proximity to the Toronto market. This has allowed the town of Ajax to capitalize on securing a highly skilled workforce that is looking to work and live in the same area."
