4th Annual Mental Health Symposium

Join The Talk On... Empathy

Ajax Home Week was founded in 1971 by dedicated service clubs and not-for-profit organizations that wanted to celebrate the Town of Ajax. Carrying on this tradition of celebration, these clubs and dedicated volunteers continue to work with the residents, businesses and commercial communities of the Town to put on a week of festivities.

These activities are for everyone regardless of gender, religion, race, age or personal means and we are proud to partner with a number of our local multicultural organizations. Ajax Home Week helps to promote the Town of Ajax regionally and on an international basis, and encourages former Ajax residents to return to Ajax for a visit.


The Ajax Public Library is the gateway to information and resources that improve the quality of life, foster life-long learning, encourage community involvement, and meet the varying educational and social needs of all members of its communities, within available resources.
