September 26th, 2014|Community Development, Ste Agathe|

Students from Machray School in Winnipeg were treated to a beautiful Autumn day as they visited Ste. Agathe to plant trees. The one day event, sponsored by the Manitoba Forestry Association and Qualico brought over 100 trees to our community. The trees were planted along Ste. Agathe’s Promenade Trail and inside Cartier Park. Students from École Ste. Agathe will have an opportunity to plant 40 potted trees at a later date. The Machray Students were welcomed to the community by Jacques Courcelles, President of the Ste. Agathe Community Development Committee, and MLA Shannon Martin (Morris). The eager students enjoyed lunch in the Cartier Park Shelter and visited the Flood Interpretive Centre before heading back home to Winnipeg. Picture R-L – Jacques Courcelles, MLA Shannon Martin (Morris), and Therese Dorge

Hemp Oil Canada Expansion Plans

March 4th, 2014|Community Development|

One of Canada’s most profitable food processing companies is planning to capitalize on its success and increase production of what may be the hottest food item in North America.

Hemp Oil Canada which produces and processes Canadian grown hemp seed into hemp seed oil, hemp protein powder and hemp flours, toasted & roasted hemp seed, hulled hemp seed and hemp coffee is planning to triple its production capacity at a new location in Ste. Agathe, MB.

“This spring we will break ground on a new state-of-the-art hemp food processing facility, with a planned move in for late fall 2014” said Shaun Crew, President & CEO with Hemp Oil Canada, which describes itself as Canada’s largest bulk wholesale supplier and private label packager of hemp food products on its website.

The new plant will be some 35,000 sq.ft. of production, processing, packaging, warehouse and office space. The building is being designed and situated to effectively double again in size at a future point.

Hemp Oil Canada has experienced double-digit growth annually for the past 10 years and over the last five years its sales have grown by 221 percent. Profit 500, the guide to Canada’s fasting growing companies, ranked Hemp Oil Canada eighth in the country amongst food processing and distribution firms in terms of revenue growth in the last five years.

“We look forward to moving into a completely automated, food grade facility this year, in order to continue as a world leader in the supply of nutritious hemp food products”, said Crew.

Ste. Agathe Manitoba Day Care Gets a Boost

April 18th, 2012|Community Development, Ste Agathe, Uncategorized|

The community of Ste. Agathe Manitoba has been working toward the construction of the facility for two years and also made a significant financial contribution in support of the project with the help of individual donors, families, local businesses and community organizations.  The Rural Municipality of Ritchot is supporting the project by committing to build an access road for the facility.

“The development of this new early learning and child-care facility connected to École Sainte-Agathe is an example of community engagement and spirit at its finest,” said Selinger.  “With support from the governments of Canada, Manitoba and the Municipality of Ritchot, parents in this community will have increased access to affordable, high-quality child care.”

An on-site daycare currently provides services for 15 school-aged children before and after school and 15 nursery-school children during school hours.  The new facility will create eight infant and 24 full-day preschool spaces in addition to the current 15 school age/nursery school spaces for a total of 32 additional spaces.
