Financial Assistance

Ability to pay should not be the determining factor in whether an Ajax resident participates in a recreation or cultural program. The Town has a number of approaches to ensure our programs and services are affordable.

Where user fees exist, a Financial Assistance program is available for select programs based on simple criteria of eligibility.

Residents not receiving support from Ontario Disability or Ontario Works programs can apply for financial assistance by calling 905-619-2529 x7253 to qualify or visit either the Ajax CC, Audley RC, or McLean CC with an Application Form and all required documentation. Approval is based on household family income. Please note, discounts will only be applied if you are approved before registering for a program or membership.

Residents who are receiving support from Ontario Disability or Ontario Works programs can receive financial assistance by bringing into the Customer Service Front Desks a recent Drug Benefit Cards, proper government issued ID with an Application Form. For more information call 905-427-8811, 905-427-2469 or 905-428-7711.
