January 27, 2023 – Parkland Ajax, the region’s newest, unmatched Seniors’ Lifestyle Residence will welcome residents to their new home next week. Meticulously designed with today’s active senior in mind, Parkland Ajax offers a full range of services and care options to support seniors at every stage of life.

“Our family has had the privilege of serving seniors for more than three decades and we thoughtfully create every community for how residents want to live,” said Jason Shannon, president of Shannex. “They want beautiful, vibrant and safe homes where they can continue to socialize and do the things they love. They want to know we’re being environmentally responsible and giving back to the community, and most of all, they want peace-of-mind knowing we’ll be there for them when needed.” 

Parkland Ajax offers restaurant-style dining with locally sourced ingredients and seasonally inspired menu choices. Residents will benefit from 24/7 emergency response from on site team members, chauffeur service, pool, spa, fitness centre and wellness activities, secure building access and much more. Parkland Ajax is 15-storeys and has 223 private, spacious suites with a full range of living options.

“Whether you’re a senior looking for a lifestyle apartment or you require access to supportive care, every detail has been considered to age in place with care delivered by team members who come to work dedicated to helping residents live their best lives,” said Lisa Benjamin, Parkland Ajax’s General Manager.

Shannex is currently on track to receive ISO 50001 certification this year, making it the first seniors’ living provider in the country to achieve this designation. Parkland Ajax has been built to be energy efficient and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

The public is welcome to stop by this weekend for the open house, January 28-29 from 9:00am – 4:00pm with information sessions happening at 10:00am and 2:00pm each day. To learn more please visit 

About Shannex

We care about community. It’s what started us on this journey when our founder purchased Shannex’s first nursing home in Sydney, Cape Breton almost 35 years ago. Since then, the family-owned business charted a new path to improve seniors’ living options to deliver the ultimate peace of mind: flexibility and freedom your own way.

As the parent company of Parkland, Shannex operates three Parkland Lifestyle Residence communities for seniors in Ontario: Parkland on Eglinton West in Etobicoke, Parkland on the Glen in Mississauga and Parkland Ajax, as well as locations throughout New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.
