About Us

We are a registered non-profit, accredited medical facility. We are committed to providing reproductive and abortion care to women, trans, and non-binary people in a safe, confidential, and nonjudgmental atmosphere. Our caring team of doctors, nurses, counsellors, administrative, and technical staff is committed to providing high quality individual care.

This clinic supports Clinical Teaching and Research through the University of British Columbia. We believe sharing our knowledge and experience is vital to improving the care provided by the next generation of physicians and health professionals and allows us to provide the best possible care for all of our clients. It is always the individual client’s decision whether a medical resident or learner is involved in their care.


The Elizabeth Bagshaw Clinic is dedicated to providing safe terminations of pregnancy, decision-making, and reproductive counselling in a client-centred, supportive environment of confidentiality and respect for freedom of choice.

We strive to provide health care:

  • to all people in accordance with the BC Human Rights Code;
  • in an environment of confidentiality, safety, equity, and respect for individual choice;
  • that meets the highest standard of health care; and
  • that is comprehensive, universal, and accessible as required by the Canada Health Act.

You're in Good Hands

Our medical, counselling, and administrative staff have been carefully chosen for their skills, training, knowledge, and commitment to excellent reproductive health care. Each step of the way, from booking your appointment to aftercare, you will feel supported by our compassionate team.
