Health insurance

Abortions are covered in Quebec…

If you have a valid Quebec health insurance card (RAMQ), immigration certificate, or a document that allows you access to health care in Quebec. In this case, your abortion is covered whether it takes place at a private clinic, hospital, or community health centre.

If you don’t have coverage…

You are still able to access abortion without coverage but will need to pay fees before the procedure. These fees vary depending on the site and number of weeks of the pregnancy from $550-$1200.

If you require financial assistance in accessing an abortion you can:

  • Contact a few access sites to ask about your specific situation and the costs associated – some clinics have a discretionary fund and you may be eligible.
  • Contact the FQPN (website in French) at 514 866 3721 for options for financial support.
  • Contact us to support you  through this process.
