McAdam is a friendly community filled with people who care. A wonderful place to raise a family, lots of opportunity to enjoy nature and the great outdoors. We have lived here almost 60 years and have had a life of peace and contentment. Thank you to all the residents of McAdam, you are indeed the town’s greatest asset!

I like living in McAdam because there’s so much to do, like taking the bikes out to go fishing. McAdam is a close knit community where everyone knows each other.

Quiet, peaceful and no traffic jams! Great snow removal in the streets in a prompt manner. Lots of services for a small community like schools, grocery store, pharmacy, and a health center that other communities don’t have. There are great festivals like July 1st, there is an active station committee, Christmas parade, monthly bingo, open skating rink---all things that bring our community together. Everyone know their neighbour, if you need a hand there is always someone willing to help!

McAdam is a very friendly village where everybody knows everybody. There is always someone to give a helping hand to anyone that needs it. It's a great place to raise a family where you don’t have a lot of fears of a big city. We're big into sports and the community really supports their programs and teams. The village does a lot for raising funds for organizations and school functions. Overall, it is a very community orientated place, especially when it comes to holiday functions and celebrating.

I like coming home to McAdam because I can open the door to any of my relative’s homes and know that I am truly loved and welcome.
