Who We Are

Choice in Health Clinic is a non-profit clinic with a community-based board of directors. The Clinic, which opened its doors in 1988, is licensed and fully funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care. We are also regulated as an Out-of-Hospital Premises by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario. This means that we operate under special standards that are enforced through regular inspections by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario. We are also members of the National Abortion Federation (NAF), the largest abortion provider organization on the continent. NAF provides continuing education to staff at member clinics, as well as support for many clinic operations. As members we also adhere to NAF standards for abortion care.

Choice in Health Clinic complies with all Public Health Ontario guidelines regarding infection control, including special precautions for infectious diseases, as mandated for community-based care facilities.

Statement of Values

Choice in Health
Clinic strives to develop and deliver services in an inclusive, anti-racist
feminist environment, which we understand to be:
·Client-centered (being based on an individual’s unique experiences and needs)
·responsive, caring and non-judgmental and trauma-informed
·knowledgeable about, as well as respectful and affirming of, women, transgender and intersex people, and all folks along the spectrum of gender identity and expression
·lesbian, bisexual, gay, and queer positive
·mindful of gendered power dynamics in sexual relationships and the potential impact on a pregnant person’s ability to make autonomous decisions about their pregnancy
·respectful of differing spiritual needs and practices

We are committed to challenging our own thinking and systemic barriers that might limit access to safe and quality abortion services. Some of the barriers we identify relate to race, culture, religion, class, sexual orientation, physical ability, gender identity and expression, intersex variations, body size, age, immigration status, nationality, mental health, poverty, socio-economic status, geography, and experience of sexual assault.
