MONTREAL, Dec. 21 /CNW Telbec/ - Portage has obtained unconditional accreditation thanks to the substantial collaborative efforts of its Governors and its organisational team members over the past four years. Accreditation recognises Portage for the quality of the services it provides, the abilities of its employees, and the expertise of the organisation. Recognition by Accreditation Canada demonstrates Portage's commitment to the ongoing improvement process surrounding the quality of its services.

Portage is proud to be the only substance abuse organisation with multiple service locations across Canada to garner this distinction.

"Accreditation is a rigorous process," said Mr. Peter A. Howlett, President of Portage. "Receiving the approval of Accreditation Canada requires superior quality in our clinical practices, risk management, client safety, performance measurement and governance. The honour is awarded uniquely to a limited number of establishments who have satisfied all the organisational practices required by Accreditation Canada."
