The National Abortion Federation (NAF) Canada works to ensure that abortion is safe, legal, and accessible, which promotes health and justice for women.
ABOUT NAF CANADA
NAF Canada promotes reproductive health among Canadian women by ensuring that abortion care is accessible and carried out to the highest standards. Our members include free standing clinics, physicians’ offices, and hospitals, who provide abortion care for approximately half the women seeking care in Canada.
We support physicians, nurses, counsellors, and administrators in providing safe, high-quality abortion care. We help improve abortion access by increasing the number of health care professionals educated and trained in abortion provision.
We also provide financial assistance for patients through the Dr. Henry Morgentaler Patient Assistance Fund. This Fund helps women in Canada whose abortion care is not covered by provincial health insurance or who have to incur travel expenses in accessing abortion care. This fund honors the legacy of NAF member Dr. Henry Morgentaler, who brought the Supreme Court case that decriminalized abortion in Canada. By donating to this fund, your gift will go to help women in Canada access the safe, high-quality abortion care they need.
HOW DONATIONS HELP
Although abortion is legal and covered by the provincial health care system, some women continue to face barriers in accessing this care. Your donation today will help us continue our work to ensure that women across Canada can access the abortion care they need. With your support, NAF Canada will work to:
- Educate and train health care professionals in providing safe, high-quality abortion care;
- Help ensure that the abortion pill is universally covered in all provinces and territories;
- Provide critical financial assistance through our Dr. Henry Morgentaler Patient Assistance Fund so that women not covered by the provincial health care system can obtain the abortion care they need; and
- Assist women with expenses related to travel when they can’t access abortion care services in their home community.
As the only pro-choice organization in the country that represents abortion providers, NAF Canada depends on generous Canadians, like you, to help support our work in ensuring safe, legal, and accessible abortion care for women.
