Welcome to Northern Portugal Cultural Centre online – The heartbeat of Durham Region’s Portuguese community.

Founded in 1983 by Portuguese immigrants who wanted to celebrate their Minhoto roots our Centre has grown into one of the most respectable, community-minded clubs in Ontario. Although our Centre’s name traditions and Rancho (folk dance group) are rooted in the north (Minho, specifically)  we are by no means an exclusive “northern” club. Today our members (and our committee) represent all corners of continental Portugal, Acores and Madeira. We hold various fundraisers throughout the year to help local causes – specifically the  R.S. McLaughlin Durham Regional Cancer Centre and our yearly Simcoe Hall Toy Drive.

Everyone is welcome to join us for any of our events – please see our calendar (below) for complete listings of our upcoming events.

Ontario Trillium Foundation

The Northern Portugal Cultural Centre would like to thank the Ontario Trillium Foundation for their generous cash donation. This grant has allowed us to replace the roof and make the front entrance of the centre and the washrooms fully accessible to people of all abilities, so all can enjoy our cultural and recreation programs.
