Our Mission

To ensure reproductive freedom by protecting and advancing rights and access to abortion and to quality reproductive health care.

Our Vision

The Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada (ARCC) is “pro-choice”, with a primary focus on ensuring abortion rights and access for women and transgender people capable of pregnancy (“trans”). ARCC affirms the following:

ARCC also supports the concept of Reproductive Justice. We recognize that the sexual and reproductive health and rights of people from many diverse communities are disproportionately affected by marginalization and oppression, including the LGBTQ community (lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender/queer), Indigenous communities, racialized communities, youth, people with disabilities, and other vulnerable groups. To ensure justice, fundamental inequalities must be addressed for all. (Please see our Position Paper #100 on Reproductive Justice for more information.)
