Making an Appointment

If you wish to have an abortion, you do not need to be referred by a doctor or nurse.

You can call our confidential voice mailbox directly at 765-4018 (outside Yellowknife: 1-888-873-5710). Simply leave your name and a telephone number where we can reach you, and let us know if we can leave a telephone message at this number. One of our staff will return your call with an appointment time and instructions. We will not leave a message unless you have instructed us to do so. We will also not identify ourselves as calling from the NOW program if someone else answers your phone.

When we call you back, you will be given a date and time for your first appointment. If you choose to proceed with a surgical abortion after your first appointment, it will be done the following day.

If you require transportation to Yellowknife, but you do not want to have this arranged by your local health centre, please let us know when you are booking your appointment. Your transportation can be arranged directly by our staff.

If you are a health care provider wishing to refer a woman to the NOW program, please see the Referral Information page
