About This Charity

Our Mission

We are a nonprofit Christian ministry , affiliated with a national network of Canadian pregnancy support services. The Island Pregnancy Centre is dedicated to serving and supporting women struggling with an unplanned pregnancy. Our mission is to affirm the value of life by providing practical, emotional and spiritual assistance to those who face pregnancy related issues. Women can count on practical support and non-judgmental care from us during this difficult time. Motivated by sincere love, and in partnership with the Christian community, we provide a caring and supportive environment that restores hope to those facing unplanned pregnancies, dealing with pregnancy losses or exploring sexual integrity as a lifestyle.
