About Portage


This past fall, the Ontario Ministry of Children & Youth Services presented Portage with a certificate to recognise the organisation’s dedication, support, and encouragement for the personal development of youth in need in the province of Ontario.

The Portage Elora rehabilitation treatment centre for youth has been providing residential substance abuse treatment to 14 to 18 year olds since 1985. Portage is very grateful for the support of the Ontario government, which finances a significant portion of the centre’s operating budget so that at-risk youth can get the support they need.
