Located in Durham Region, just East of Pickering, Ajax has one of the fastest growing populations in Ontario, with a dramatic increase in people moving East from Toronto. A unique community of heritage sites like St. George’s Anglican Church and Cemetery as well as almost a dozen 19th-century residences on Kingston road, being a resident of Ajax makes you proud. Home to various strip malls like the ever-popular Durham Centre, everything is within reach with stores like Winners, Costco, Chapters, HomeSense and Party City. There is also the adorable Pickering Village, a Tudor style shopping complex, created by a colony of Quakers in 1807. Ajax is also the home of the Ajax-Pickering Rouge Valley Hospital, servicing Pickering, Ajax and Whitby.
Quaint strolls through the adorable and quirky shops that make up Pickering Village. More German than Canadian, the style of the stores are reminiscent of the homes in fairy tales. Come here to visit cafes, ice cream parlours, schnitzel restaurants or the mystical book store, Odyssey.
Condos are few in Ajax, but the magic is in the affordability of the three-bed townhouses and single-family homes anyway.
Ajax has converted one of its heritage properties, the early 19th century St. Francis Church into the St. Francis Centre, a community arts and culture centre. Here you can take in community plays, comedy shows, magic shows, concerts and indie films.
