 The Town of Ajax has introduced a new measure to cut red tape and encourage economic recovery for our local businesses.

Starting today, the Town is relaxing the rules for mobile signs used to promote businesses. This change will be valid until December 31.

Changes include:

  • Removing the maximum of four mobile sign permits per calendar year
  • Increasing sign allowances for multi-tenant commercial plazas (where sightlines permit)

 Individual businesses remain limited to one mobile sign permit at a time.


  • The Town of Ajax is committed to taking concrete action to assist business recovery following COVID-19 closures
  • Changes to the portable sign restrictions are effective immediately, and extend until the end of 2020
  • For multi-tenant commercial plazas: additional, concurrent sign approvals will be provided at the discretion of the Town’s By-law Services staff on a case-by-case basis (where sightlines permit)
  • For more information about COVID-19, the Town’s response, and impacted facilities and programming, visit ajax.ca/COVID19
