2020 APBOT Mayors’ Breakfast

The Ajax-Pickering Board of Trade (APBOT) is currently operating in its 65th year, over the past three months APBOT has hosted over 25 virtual networking and educational events, mainly COVID-19 related, and has many more planned in the coming months.

Their advocacy work has proven invaluable to the membership as they continue to be the voice of business in Ajax, Pickering and throughout the Region. APBOT is proud of the work and its membership on the Durham Economic Task Force table, where the Region and all municipal economic development departments, chambers/boards of trade, BIAs, and BACD have come together to collaborate on how we continue to support business through, and post, COVID-19.

The DWA was proud to sponsor the ‘breakfast’ and had the honour of introducing Ajax Mayor, Shaun Collier who was elected as the tenth Mayor of the Town of Ajax in 2018.

His vision is to continue building Ajax into a dynamic, thriving and diverse community as we grow; a destination where people live, work and play. This means bringing a renewed focus on the value of clean streets and parks, attracting well-paying and sustainable local jobs, and our commitment to leadership in community safety and inclusion for all.

Mayor Collier is also a local champion for innovation, technology and relationship building. He is the Chair of Durham Region Transit, Vice Chair of Finance, serves on the Board of Directors of PARA Rescue and Elexicon Corporation where he Chairs the Administration Committee, and is an active member of the Large Urban Mayor’s Caucus of Ontario.

The Mayor also noted the addition of Don Terry to Ajax Economic Development and indicated the councils strong support of Black Lives Matter.
