Ajax Council invites residents, businesses and community groups to participate in SunnyTOA beginning Wednesday, May 26. This special summer-long program is designed to lift spirits, foster connections and inspire hope while staying active and healthy!

Residents can get involved via three Covid-friendly activities:

  • Participate: The ‘Spring Into Action’ community engagement program and photo contest runs for four weeks and is an opportunity for families to have fun while gaining new skills at home. Themed weekly team building challenges and creative games will be provided and participants can submit photos using #SunnyTOA for a chance to win a participation pack courtesy of ParticipACTION. And don’t miss out on your chance to win the grand prize – a child’s mountain bike!
  • Cultivate: The ‘Best in Bloom Garden Tour’ offers an opportunity to experience a self-guided garden tour throughout TOA. An online interactive garden map will allow residents and businesses to add their creative and beautiful locations. Whether by car, bike or foot, get outside and follow the flowers.
  • Rejuvenate: The volunteer eco team program, running until early fall, is an opportunity for small volunteer eco teams to meet in a Covid-friendly way at various parks and trails throughout Ajax to beautify the Town via community clean-ups. Proper training and PPE for litter collection and sorting will be provided.

“TOA staff are continually looking for new ways to creatively engage our community. We are excited to launch SunnyTOA to re-energize the community after a long and tough winter. Please follow the appropriate Public Health guidelines when taking part. As part of the launch I want to take this opportunity to formally challenge my Council colleagues to each organize a small eco team and document their cleanups!” - Mayor Shaun Collier, Town of Ajax
