Portage Québec Foundation

Portage Québec’s various drug addiction rehabilitation programs are financed in part by the Portage Québec Foundation, which raises funds through individual and corporate donations as well as fundraising activities.

The Portage Québec Foundation counts on the generosity of the community to be able to provide services that not only improve the lives of the people who come to Portage, but also those of all the families and communities that are affected by the positive outcomes of their rehabilitation.

All donations, large or small, help Portage support Quebecers as they seek freedom from addiction.

Why give to Portage?

"We all know someone, whether a family member, friend, or colleague, who has been affected by addiction in some way. It wreaks havoc on our society and it is our shared responsibility to help the youth, men, and women who are suffering. At Portage, they acquire the skills to free themselves from the grasp of addiction. It assures them a better future, and benefits all of society."


- Michel Dallaire, CEO, Fonds de placement immobilier Cominar, Member of Portage's Board of Trustee and President of the Fundraising Campaign for the Québec City region

"Addiction is devastating, and we have all witnessed the suffering and pain that it causes its victims and their families. By helping Portage, we're contributing to a better society."


- Richard Lupien, Vice President, Banque Nationale, Portage Governor and President of the Fundraising Campaign for the Montréal region
