Quality retirement homes & facilities

 Portal Village 

Portal Village, which originated as a Retirement Home in 1986 is the only Community in the area to offer such a unique blend of "Retirement Lifestyle" options and services. Portal Village also consists of a new complex completed in August 1999 that boasts 45 Garden Terrace apartment suites, a fitness centre and medical clinic. We also have 103 Retirement and Assisted Living Suites, as well as 22 Rooms in our Special Care Wing. If you wish to receive more information about Portal Village's Lifestyle Options, visit The Community of Portal Village website.

 Affordable housing 

Port Colborne has outstanding new housing developments to choose from. You can also find beautifully maintained older homes in charming, historic neighbourhoods. These choices are available at a fraction of the cost of homes in a major urban centre, even below the average housing costs of other small communities.

 Community organizations

 A good indicator of pride and a strong sense of community in any locale is in the number of clubs and service groups. In that sense, Port Colborne is certainly a vital, active and concerned community.

There are more than 47 major service organizations performing different functions and services in Port Colborne. More information about any of these organizations can be obtained from the City of Port Colborne Community Services Division or by visiting the Groups & Organizations page.
