Youth Clinics


Contraception

Several contraceptive methods are available to prevent a pregnancy or sexually transmitted and blood-borne infections (STBBI). The nurse at your high school or your CLSC’s youth clinic is the best person to talk to about birth control, and get information concerning contraceptive methods. Together, you will choose which method best suits your lifestyle. In fact, both partners should be involved in the choice of a contraceptive method since it concerns boys as much as girls. 

If you are 14 years of age and older, you do not require the permission of your parents to receive healthcare or medical prescriptions.

Consultations are confidential.

Unwanted Pregnancy

Support is available to help women decide what to do about an unwanted pregnancy. If need be, they may be referred to an appropriate resource. Pregnancy tests are performed on-site and are free of charge.

Grossesse-Secours

Support and information services for pregnant women and new mothers. 

Voluntary Interruption of Pregnancy (VIP)

Deciding whether to continue a pregnancy or to get an abortion is a personal decision. 

The Abortion Appointment Centre provides free and quick access (within 2 weeks) to abortion services on the Island of Montréal to all women who choose to get an abortion. 

Health care workers providing abortion services respect each woman’s decision and do not pass judgment. They perform the procedure and monitor patients with impartiality, respect, and complete confidentiality. 

To be eligible for the service free of charge, you must have a valid health insurance card, immigration certificate, or any other document providing access to health care in Québec.
If this is not the case, we can still help you; however, you must pay a fee before the procedure.

Screening for HIV/AIDS and sexually transmitted and blood-borne infections (STBBI) is free of charge and confidential. The Montréal West Island Integrated University Health and Social Services Centre also provides information, advice, and support regarding STBBI, contraception and pregnancy.
