ADAMA Canada announced today that it will be investing in 22 community-nominated projects across Canada through the company’s “Stomping Grounds” program, which supports local projects for positive change.

“We were blown away by the number of incredible projects that were submitted to our committee this year,” said Jodi Starodub, Marketing Lead at ADAMA Canada. “Every project has something special about it, and that makes our choices harder, but we are really excited to partner with the projects we have selected and see the impact they’ll have on their communities.”

The 22 Stomping Grounds projects for 2024 include:

  • Construction of a new baseball diamond and field in Arnaud, MB, the third and final phase of a rejuvenation project for the local community center.
  • A daycare center to be opened in Oakville, MB, a growing community that has long needed infant and preschool care.
  • A new play structure for the K-12 students at William Mason School in Choiceland, SK, to replace the current structure which is no longer up to safety code. 
  • Adding female changing rooms to the Wadena, SK, RE/MAX Curling Club.
  • A new ice plant in Marwayne, AB, that services both the arena and the curling rink. The plant is in need of urgent replacement so that local teams are able to play this season.
  • Major repairs for the 1967 Quonset part of the Scandia, AB, Community Centre to address urgent structural issues.
  • The installation of electronic water hose reels at the Claresholm, AB, Agriplex, to make it easier for the staff to ensure safe footing for the horses using the complex. 
  • Equipping and outfitting the new Pleasant View Lodge that provides supportive living for seniors and dementia patients in the Rycroft, AB, community.
  • Funding for Ramoth House in Mount Forest, ON, which provides a safe and supportive place for young women and their infants in the form of programming and guidance services.
  • Funding for Valley Food Bank in Woodstock, NB, which helps to feed some of the most vulnerable members of their community in a confidential and dignified manner. 
  • Replacing the old play structure at Mary Montgomery School in Virden, MB, with a fully inclusive and accessible recreational space for children of all ages. 
  • A new ice plant for the Community Centre in Oak River, MB, that houses a hockey rink, curling ice and serves as a recreational hub for smaller communities around the area.
  • Construction of a second daycare facility in Rosetown, SK, to accommodate the growing need for childcare in its community.
  • Funding for 4-H Club in Unity, SK.
  • A new ice plant for the Community Centre in Lucky Lake, SK, which is home to the community’s public skating, figure skating, hockey and minor hockey programs.
  • Reopening the Community Splash Park in Assiniboia, SK, with a new water source and drainage system to provide a free space for the more than 6,000 visitors each year. 
  • Replacing the ice plant at Oxbow Rink in Oxbow, SK, to ensure that the space can be used for upcoming seasons of ice sports.
  • Revitalizing the playground at Big Valley School, in Big Valley, AB, including the replacement of old swings, the addition of accessible swings and two new basketball hoops. 
  • Funding for the Torrington Ag Society which operates the Torrington Arena in Torrington, AB, which houses several youth hockey teams and provides space for community activities.
  • Expanding the Lanigan Daycare in Lanigan, SK as the need for childcare in their community rises and the waitlist for the current facility grows longer.
  • Completing construction of female changing rooms at Wakaw Minor Hockey in Wakaw, SK, to accommodate the growing interest in women’s hockey in their community. 
  • A new ice plant for the curling rink in Cudworth, SK. The current ice plant, over 40 years old, urgently requires replacement to ensure that community teams can continue playing this season.

Now in its second year running, Stomping Grounds was created by the company with the mandate to invest in the heart of communities and in the people who call them home, building strength through local initiatives that support youth, health, and connection.

Through Stomping Grounds, ADAMA Canada invested over $120 000 in community projects last year.

“We see the results of these investments firsthand as we often work and live in these communities,” said Starodub. “We also know that without the tireless work of community members, many of these projects wouldn’t be possible and it brings us great joy to be able to support those unsung heroes and help bring the dreams of small towns to life.”
