Among heterosexual sexually active Canadians not intending to conceive, 15% use no contraception at all, and withdrawal remains the third most used contraceptive in Canada;
24% of Canadians don`t have access to a subsidized drug plan, meaning they must pay out of pocket for medications like contraception; and
Provision of subsidized contraceptives has shown to be cost-benecial in a number of jurisdictions including the United States and Great Britain by reducing the costs of unintended pregnancy.
We, the undersigned, Citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to support the NDP’s Motion M-65 that calls on the federal government to work with the provinces to cover the full cost of prescribed contraceptives.
