Safe Methods Program

Safe Methods Program

In partnership with BC Women’s Hospital and Health Centre, Everywoman’s is now part of the Safe Methods at the Right Time Program. The Safe Methods Program gives free birth control to all those who:

  • Have valid insurance with the BC Medical Services Plan (MSP/Care Card); and
  • Allow their information to be reviewed so the program may be evaluated

To be eligible for free birth control you must start contraception on the day of your aspiration (surgical) abortion or within four weeks of the completion of a medical abortion.

During your appointment, a counsellor will speak to you about a broad range of birth control choices. The pros and cons of each choice will be reviewed to help you decide which one would be best for you. It is completely up to you whether you participate in the program or not.

These methods are free through the program:
