Local businesses can submit by August 6

The Ajax Anti-Black Racism Task Force is developing a directory of Black-owned businesses for the Town of Ajax. Appearing in this directory will provide businesses with increased exposure and opportunities for companies to be discovered by potential customers while making it more accessible to locate services and products online.

Interested businesses can submit their information by August 6, 2021 at ajax.ca/taskforce.


“This directory will not only give exposure to Black-owned businesses but provide the community with a convenient outlet to find local businesses to support in Ajax. We can't wait to publish the directory in support of the Black community and hope to get every business on the list!”

- Mariska Thomas, Chair, AABR Task Force
