About Portage


The annual Portage Atlantic Recognition Ceremony recognises the youth who have completed their residential therapy in the past year and celebrates the graduates who have maintained a positive lifestyle for a full year. This year’s celebration will take place on Sunday, September 30 and will feature a special guest speaker, and former Cassidy Lake resident, Dan Martell.

Mr. Martell is a Moncton-born serial technology entrepreneur, angel investor, and public mentor now based in Silicon Valley. As a past Portage Atlantic resident living with ADHD, he offers an inspiring perspective on managing perceived barriers to achieve success.

On this very special day, parents, friends, and supporters come together at the Hampton High School in Hampton, NB to celebrate the young men and women who worked hard during the previous year to turn their lives around. Post-secondary education bursaries are awarded to a select group of graduates showing exceptional personal growth and dedication to future well-being.

Invitations for this event are forthcoming by mail. Please mark your calendars in advance, and be sure to come and experience this very moving event. Anyone who would like to make sure they receive an invitation is encouraged to contact kurke@portage.ca or call (506) 472-4847.
