What Is Ajax Known For?

Ajax was established in 1941 as a munitions production center, where 40 million shells were packed to support the war effort by an imported workforce of 9,000. Ajax has grown exponentially since then and is now a town of 110,000 that’s part of the greater Toronto Metropolitan Area, boasting over 100 restaurants. Ajax is rich with parks and occupies a narrow stretch of waterfront at Lake Ontario. Some visit for the proximity to ski resorts in the Durham Regional Forest north of town, including Skyloft, Dagmar, and Lakeridge Ski Resorts.
