What you have is definitely an ash. We have ash as boulevard trees on our street. There are approximately 200,000 ash trees in Winnipeg. As far as I know the ash borer has not yet arrived in Manitoba but it is just a matter of time. Apparently it was first came to North America in a pile of packing wood from China in 2002.

Chico, I found some info on Oakville. Apparently it is already in your community and steps are being taken. If you google Oakville and ash borer, you will find lots of links. Here are a few:

If you try to take some steps to save your ash, better not tell hubs.
