Birth control will soon be free in B.C

Recommended Posts

British Columbia is soon to become the first jurisdiction in Canada to make prescription birth control free to its residents.

What will be covered?

Starting April 1, the province said it will cover the following prescription contraceptives:

  • Oral hormone pills, commonly known as the pill.
  • Subdermal (under-the-skin) injections and implants.
  • Copper and hormonal intrauterine devices, also known as IUDs.
  • Plan B, also known as the morning-after pill.

Free prescription contraception will also be made available to men, including trans men.

Vasectomies have already been covered for years by B.C. MSP, or the Medical Services Plan.
