Ajax is part of Durham Region, one of the fastest growing areas of Ontario. The population of Ajax is approximately 120,000, 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 over 91,000.

Residents enjoy a full range of excellent municipal services of large city quality in a mid-sized city 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 seven 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. The diversity of our population can be seen every day, and at regular community events such as Home Week, Ajax Family Festival and Pickering Village Fall Festival, among others.  (www.visitajax.ca)
