About us

On January 28, 1988, the Supreme Court of Canada issued the “Morgentaler decision”, which effectively decriminalized abortion in Canada. On November 4, 1988, Everywoman’s Health Centre  became the first abortion clinic in BC.

We are a nonprofit society and registered charity that is governed by a volunteer board of directors. It receives its base funding from the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority. The facility is accredited by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC and the National Abortion Federation. There are about 30 employees and contractors and the clinic has a unionized workforce.
