Canadians For Choice

Incorporated in 2002, Canadians for Choice is a pro-choice, non-profit charitable organization dedicated to ensuring reproductive choice for all Canadians. CFC envisages a world where individuals – regardless of age, ability, race, gender, sexual orientation, place of residence, or socio-economic and other status – have access to the information, resources and services required to make and exercise informed choices on all aspects of their sexual and reproductive health and rights.

Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada

The Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada (ARCC) is the only nation-wide political pro-choice group devoted to ensuring abortion rights and access for women. We formed in October 2005 to carry out political and educational work to support reproductive rights and health.

National Abortion Federation

The National Abortion Federation (NAF) is the professional association of abortion providers in North America. We believe that women should be trusted to make private medical decisions in consultation with their health care providers. NAF currently offers quality training and services to abortion providers and unbiased information and referral services to women.
