Wheelchair accessible.


The 2023 Ajax Spirit Walk will begin at Ajax Town Hall and will explore the surrounding area. Along the way, event participants will meet a variety of “Spirits” from the Town’s past, who will share the history and heritage of the area and how the Town of Ajax was born from Defence Industries Limited (DIL), the largest munitions plant in the British Commonwealth. Through these “Spirits”, courtesy of Ajax Community Theatre, you’ll discover what life was like for the DIL workers, approximately 7,000 of which were women. You'll learn about the incredibly important yet dangerous work these women did to help with the war effort during WWII.

Participants should be able to travel for approximately an hour, either on foot or with a mobility device. The Ajax Spirit Walk is a free event, however, registration is required. For more information and how to register, please visit
