Rotary International is a humanitarian service organization that brings together business and professional leaders in order to provide community service, promote integrity, and advance goodwill, peace, and understanding in the world. The Rotary Club of East York is a vibrant group of professionals dedicated to addressing urgent needs in our community by raising funds and volunteering directly with various local charities. Two of the main causes identified by Rotary International are fighting disease and protecting the environment, which aligns perfectly with the investment opportunities identified by Michael Lee-Chin and his team at Portland Holdings Inc.
