THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that BPW Canada urges the Government of Canada, specifically the Minister of Health Minister of Status of Women, and the Minister of Families, Children and Social Development to work with their provincial/territorial counterparts to ensure that long-acting reversible contraceptives, such as IUDs, be covered by provincial health care plans supported by federal subsidies, so that health care providers such as gynecologists, family doctors, midwives, and sexual health clinic volunteer doctors can provide and insert them at no cost to the user.
