All NTHSSA facilities are working to provide safe and accessible health services while ensuring COVID safety precautions are in place. Please call ahead to your intended health services to learn about current COVID restrictions or processes that may affect your visit.

Northern Options for Women (NOW) is a program dedicated to making reproductive choice and abortion services available to women in the Northwest Territories and Kitikmeot region of Nunavut. Our mission is to provide accessible, patient centered, non-judgmental, evidenced based, safe abortion care.

We are a team of committed, trained, and experienced doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners and support staff who believe in a woman’s right to reproductive choice in a compassionate and confidential environment.  Our staff all have specific training and experience in abortion care and counseling, and are dedicated to providing these services in an atmosphere of respect and support.

We welcome all women, regardless of age, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, national origin, marital status, family status, and mental or physical disability.
