We are a community-based clinical program in Winnipeg offering surgical abortions to women who live in Manitoba and surrounding areas. We are able to perform abortions for women who are up to 16 weeks pregnant. For women who are over 16 weeks pregnant, we can offer referrals to other services.
We provide our clients with safe, legal, and confidential services in a non-judgmental and supportive setting. Our team of doctors, nurses, counsellors and administrative staff are trained and experienced in providing compassionate and high-quality care. Our clinic is licensed and accredited by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Manitoba and maintains the highest standards of medical care.
Please note: Some people have severe reactions to scented poducts. Thank you for not wearing perfume and reducing other scents while at the clinic.
If you live in Manitoba: If you have a current Manitoba Health card, the cost of the abortion is covered by Manitoba Health.
If you live outside of Manitoba: The fee is $500. You can pay by cash, debit or credit card.
For international students attending school in Manitoba: The fee is $500. You can pay by cash, debit or credit card.
