About Portage


Portage’s Soirée des Grands Philanthropes, a Tribute Evening to Serge Godin, Founder and Executive Chairman of the Board of CGI, was held on September 22, 2011, in the Salle des pas perdus of Montréal’s Windsor Station. A resounding success, this year’s event brought together many business leaders in the Montréal community to raise a record $1.2 million for Portage’s substance abuse rehabilitation programs.

Portage is extremely pleased with this result and very thankful to all those who helped put the event together. A heartfelt thank you to the co-chairs of the evening, Mr. René Angélil, President, Les Productions Feeling, and Thierry Vandal, President and CEO, Hydro-Québec, and to all members of the honourary committee: André Bérard, André Chagnon, Marcel Côté, Julie Godin, François Olivier, Peter A. Howlett, and Colette Taylor.


Mr. André Chagnon, President and CEO of the Fondation Lucie et André Chagnon congratulates Mr. Serge Godin, Founder and Executive Chairman of the Board of CGI.


Many thanks to the event’s generous sponsors.
