  Goals and Priorities


The mandate of the Portage la Prairie Community Revitalization Corporation (PCRC)
is to strengthen the well-being of Portage la Prairie by empowering citizens,
enhancing neighbourhoods, fostering community spirit
and building the capacity of community organizations.



Vibrant Portage Community Plan
for Community and Social Development


In 2013, the Portage la Prairie Community Revitalization Corporation (PCRC) consulted with Portage la Prairie residents to identify priority areas for our community. A city wide survey received 645 responses from community members, who shared their thoughts, concerns and ideas for a vibrant Portage la Prairie. In addition 188 youth responded to a Youth Input Survey. To provide deeper context, focus groups were held on topics such as youth opportunities, economic security and parks development. Together this input helped the PCRC create the Vibrant Portage Community Plan for Community and Social Development.

Building a Vibrant Portage la Prairie requires the entire community to become involved. Together with our community partners, PCRC will be encouraging all of Portage la Prairie to do their part to collectively achieve this community vision. This document summarizes the priority areas which emerged from the consultations. We encourage you to make a commitment to make a difference in one of the areas of the Vibrant Portage Community Plan!
