Many members of the Port Hope Rotary club participated in the grand opening of the Port Hope Youth Wellness Hub.

The Ontario government is launching a new youth wellness hub to serve the Municipality of Port Hope and the surrounding area. 

The hub — to be located at 15 Cavan Street near downtown Port Hope — will begin in 2025 to offer free mental health, primary care and addiction services to youth ages 12 to 25 throughout Northumberland County and Alderville First Nation.

It is one of 10 new hubs the province is adding to its existing network of 22 hubs opened since 2020, says Sylvia Jones, Deputy Premier and Minister of Health. The province is providing approximately $1 million for the project.
