Guiding Your Financial Journey with Ease

A bank committed to helping our communities flourish

For over a century since our founding in 1901, we have proudly served our local community. As our community is changing, we are changing too, adapting to meet the evolving needs of our clients. Over the past six months, we have taken the time to think about the best way to communicate our core values and product offering to our current and future customers. As a result, we have rebranded the original State Bank of Ceylon into the bank you see today – Portage Bank. This rebrand was inspired by our desire to market more effectively to you and to reflect the spirit of exploration as we offer new financial products and services as we expand our offerings to new markets and frontiers. Additionally, the challenges that the Covid-19 pandemic presented to traditional in-person banking created an opportunity to pivot, meeting the needs of a digital customer. As explorers in new territory, we saw this as a golden opportunity to double down on ultimate convenience and simplicity through online banking. Portage Bank, while still offering in person, walk in service, we are now offering the conveniences of an Internet Bank, still abiding by our core values, which include solidarity: taking a team approach to accomplish more together; and human dignity, recognizing the uniqueness of every individual. We were founded on personal service & customer care and we still live by those principles today.
