Accessible Ajax activites and events are coordinated in partnership with the Town’s Accessibility Advisory Committee (AAC). The AAC is comprised of volunteer members of the Ajax community living with various abilities. The Committee is an integral part of providing feedback to the Town on accessibility and inclusion and Members are involved with planning awareness initiatives and activities throughout the year. Check out what's currently going on below!

Get Involved - #AccessTogetherAjax

Let’s move towards a community that promotes inclusivity and accessibility. What ideas do you have to create a more accessible Town of Ajax?

What does accessibility mean to you? Online Idea Board

Share your thoughts, ideas, and suggestions on the virtual Idea Board below.

Ideas to help inspire accessibility actions you can take:

  • Pledge to use person-first language - Refer to the person first before referring to the disability. Say ‘persons with disabilities’ not ‘disabled people’.
  • Don’t make assumptions - Not all disabilities are visible or immediately apparent. Treat people with disabilities the same way you would treat able-bodied people - with respect and kindness. If you have questions about what to do for someone, just ask. People generally appreciate your honesty and would rather you ask about their needs than make assumptions and judgements.
  • Educate yourself - Learn more about accessibility in Ajax and beyond or sit in on an Accessibility Advisory Committee Meeting.
  • Become a Barrier Buster - Look for barriers in your community (physical, communication, information, etc.). Identify ideas and opportunities to improve access, remove or prevent barriers and share them!

Stop by to see the Accessible Ajax information station at the following upcoming community events:

  • Thursday, June 9, 2022 - Seniors BBQ
    11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. at Rotary Park, Ajax Waterfront
  • Sunday, June 26 - Ajax Trailfest
    8:30 a.m. at Audley Recreation Centre (1955 Audley Rd. N.)


Unmasking Brain Injury - Art Exhibit

There's a story behind every mask. Behind every mask, there's a person, a person that's been touched by brain injury. Visit the FREE exhibit to view 40 hand made masks on display, created by Durham Region residents living with brain injury.

Ajax Town Hall, Heritage Square Atrium (west entrance)
65 Harwood Avenue, South
8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Monday - Friday
On exhibit until the end of 2022
