About Portage


This year marks thirty years that Portage’s drug treatment centre in Elora has been helping youth and families to develop the necessary tools and confidence to take back control of their lives.

As we celebrate our 30th birthday, we celebrate the thousands of young people whose lives have been touched by Portage since our rehabilitation centre opened its doors in Elora, Ontario in 1985. Thank you to all of those people, who have made Portage such a special place. Thank you to our staff members, our board members, our volunteers, and all of our partners and donors for making treatment at Portage possible.

Portage Ontario is funded by the Ministry of Children and Youth Services, by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care via the Waterloo Wellington Local Health Integration Network (WWLHIN), and by the Portage Ontario Foundation, which raises funds from private donors and through fundraising activities.

Portage is grateful to have had the support of the community and of the Government of Ontario for the past three decades.
