Congratulations Class of 2020 on successfully achieving a milestone by completing your studies at Portage College.
Convocation is an exciting time for us all. Whether we are instructors, learning support, library staff or administration, we want to successfully “portage you” onto your next journey.
We value our connection with you, and we hope that you will fondly remember your time with your Portage family.
Virtual Convocation will begin at 7:00 P.M. Join our host, Carrie Froehler, on Zoom to engage in the celebration.

Family and friends are welcome to share congratulatory messages by posting them on Flipgrid or any of our social media channels linked in the "Continue the Celebration" dropdown below.
Several members of the College community have come together to congratulate graduates and send their best wishes. You can watch their video messages on Flipgrid.
Portage College is proud to have such an extensive number of awards, scholarships and bursaries available to students, and we congratulate this year’s recipients. The College faculty and staff are proud of you!
The Honour Ceremony has been part of the Portage College Convocation tradition since 2003. It was first introduced as a special ceremony acknowledging our students for successful completion of their schooling.
Each graduand who requested a symbolic eagle feather should have received one in their convocation celebration box. An elder has blessed the feathers and has said a prayer for the graduands.
Send us a photo or video of how you’re celebrating Convocation!
We'll gather them all and create a mashup video.
Simply send your photo, video or link via email.
