Our Mission

Cover ContraceptiON is a grassroots, non-partisan, volunteer-run campaign with the goal of providing universal, no-cost contraception to all those in Ontario. The Cover ContraceptiON campaign started at the beginning of the pandemic, when a group of doctors at the University of Toronto recognised that the COVID-19 pandemic was intensifying pre-existing inequities among marginalized populations – those of low socioeconomic status, cultural minorities, Black and Indigenous peoples and residents of rural communities. 


It has now grown to include other concerned professionals, community members and students. On World Contraception Day 2020 (September 26), a petition for universal contraception coverage gathered over 1000 signatures from healthcare providers across Ontario and was endorsed by 5 professional and non-profit organizations.
